I have visions that this site may allow parents of women neurosurgeons to comment on how they feel about their amazing daughters or how spouses, significant others, friends, siblings, or offspring view the pioneering women that we all are.
I would like to share just one touching story: I was recently at the University of Pittsburgh visiting my youngest (I can hardly call my 6"2", 240 pound son my baby, now can I?) at out first college "Parent's Weekend". My husband and I sat high up at Heinz field with Daniel and his friends watching Division I football on a glorious Saturday. In rapid succession, the Pitt Panthers scored a go ahead touchdown (they won the game) and I received a lovely e-mail from book contributors from both Chile and Iran. What a spectacular confluence of my professional and personal life!
I would love to hear your stories, see your pictures, meet those who have helped make your success possible.
