Patients’ Stories

Just some of the stories from our very own patients

Roman’s Story – Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma

Meet Roman. Roman’s smile begins in a small corner of his mouth, but quickly opens up to a full-on, wide-open grin when he gets excited. And he’s got a lot of reasons to be excited. Roman’s a 5 year old boy who has a very rare cancer: embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. And today, a year and a half since meeting Dr. Rawal, he is cancer-free.

Ronan’s Story – Chronic Rhinosinusitis

Ronan Liu is not your typical 13-year old middle-schooler. This extroverted young man plays soccer, runs track, plays the guitar, and performs in various theater productions throughout his hometown of Wallingford, CT. He had been living life to its fullest, until the summer of 2019, when he started to have recurrent sinus infections and headaches that just wouldn’t go away.
