In an article in the AARP Magazine, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Chief Medical Editor for NBC News, describes her experience treating Lindsay Nohr, a patient with tongue cancer, describing Lindsay as “my patient, my teacher.” Dr. Snyderman writes, “We can’t know then what we will come to realize later in life — that our professors are just laying the brickwork, and that our real teachers are our patients.” Lindsay was successfully treated by Dr. Snyderman after freezing her eggs, has married and had three children, and has founded Fertile Hope to serve other cancer patients at risk of infertility.
