I'll be checking this out soon, and can't wait to hear your voice!  It'll feel like I'm hearing from close girlfriend, which is how I feel about all of you.

Loved the series and loved your sexy accent!  I learned a lot and felt better about potential recurrence.  Plus I will be asking my doctor about HRT in the future.  Good questions.  Don't know what we would do without your willingness to share and educate us.

but the highlight was hearing you speak, Alexandra! Your questions were great and the webinar was very interesting. I appreciate your willingness to educate us all! Now, if only those PARP inhibitors were more readily available. Why can't you, as a Canadian, come to the US for a study?
