It was Dr. Souwedaine who performed Jenn’s two brain surgeries over her four years of treatment.
But, perhaps just as important as the tremendous skill of this renowned neurosurgeon, is the rapport that Dr. Souwedaine develops with his patients. It was so refreshing to see a doctor take the time to become familiar with their patients on a personal level – with Jenn it was the college football rivalry of Penn State (Jenn) and Michigan (Dr. Souwedaine).
But even more important is the compassion that Mark Souwedaine shows for his patients. Knowing how traumatic it would be for a late teen/early twenties young woman to lose her hair to cancer, Dr. Souwedaine personally found a way for Jenn to keep her beautiful hair after both surgeries. This display of tremendous skill and sincere compassion is a rare combination.
