    I wish I could see you to treat me. But that will be expensive and I can’t afford it. I’m 23 🙁

    What really catches me is what the Man says @ 8:00min in.   3 Names in all of north america. 

    See i just not knowing a lot about my condition figured just contacting Dr.Donald Nuss and ask him would be the best idea.

    That is impressive frankly 3 names and he picked Mayo Clinic with her.

    It’s very difficult when other doctors give you misinformation or dissuade you from pectus repair surgery. But believe me, living with this, especially when it impacts your health severely, is NOT the way to live. I can’t walk a few feet without gasping for air. If I walk a block, I’m near passing out. I get tears in my eyes each time I hear Dr. J’s patients describe it as life changing. I long for that feeling. I truly do.
