I first met Dr. Scott Borinstein, a young, dynamic and engaging oncologist, at Critical Mass (the Young Adult Cancer Alliance’s annual conference) in Denver last November. During a conversation between dart games, I began to share with him the loss of my daughter, Sara, to a sarcoma (his specialty). As we talked, I realized that I had a lot of questions about the relationship of the oncologist with his/her patients and their caregivers. Scott was open, authentic and keen to chat. It was clear to me that other caregivers could benefit from his answers. So I set up a phone interview with him, to have a more in-depth conversation that could be publicly posted on CKN. He graciously agreed.
