    "Through my many experiences with life-threatening illnesses, and quality-of-life threatening illnesses I know the importance of information.

    Information is comfort.
    Information is power.
    Information can save your life.

    When it comes to Pituitary/Hormonal issues, where does one get the information they need? The Pituitary Patient Resource Guide is the only place to get the information you need to truly face these many diseases. It is amazing to me that for an issue this large, there are no other places to get the comfort and/or power to save, not just the quality of your life, but maybe your life itself.

    Pituitary disease is a unique science, so much so that I would almost consider it an art form. Each patient is different, so finding the right physician is crucial to achieving the best quality of life."
