Default Interview with reporter for NY Times

I just got off the phone with a reporter for the New York Times. He is doing a piece on laser treatment for hemangiomas. He would like to speak with parents that had a pediatrician say "wait and see" and then went out on their own to find a specialist that did laser tx. Please contact him at the email address below.

Thank you,

Corinne

Hi Corrine,
I just posted a message on the board regarding this article that actually ran yesterday. Brian featured the story of me and my daughter. I was quite surprised as we spoke last month and he told me he would let me know when the article ran. I happened to hear about it from a friend of mine at work whose daughter was also born with an "H". Anyway - the link to the article is as follows:

I was very happy with it!!!

Thank you for this support group - I am SURE it helps a lot of people make some difficult decisions.
