The night before my mastectomy, I had done my best to keep my mind off of the impending procedure.

Kayleigh McEnany
It’s been the best-case scenario neck surgery that I think I could have drawn up as far as the procedure being done, Dr. Cordover in Birmingham, Alabama. Man, he is amazing at what he does. The rehab process has been no setbacks.
