Your Stories

My Advisor was amazing and had so much patience explaining everything. We had no idea about the funding, where it came from, how to get it, or how it was to be used. She explained everything so that we could understand exactly what steps needed to be taken from that point on. After the stress of the diagnosis, it was nice to deal with someone so knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.
