  1. I had 2 brain ops in Australia, the last 15 months ago. I have a shaky wobbly walk and a very slight speech impediment and headaches every day but I am alive! I had a torn vein which was removed. One of the lucky ones! I can honestly say never once did they hurt me.

  2. Dr. Dirks saved our daughter's life almost exactly one year ago [Sunday of the March break]…. i don't really understand a lot of what he says, but every word is music… we are so thankful for the work he and his colleagues have done to understand pediatric brain tumours…. Thank you, and bless you Peter Dirks.
