Humans of NY has been doing a 2–week series on pediatric cancer (patients, families, providers) at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Mark Souweidane was interviewed for the series on Tuesday and his segments were posted on Wednesday. It has been an amazing phenomenon for two straight days now – literally hundreds of thousands of comments, likes, shares, and a veritable outpouring of support and love for Mark and his work.
