Graduated from med school at 16,
the youngest doctor in America!
(still no driver license…)
As “Genius Girl” Saira begins her internship in pediatric oncology, she expects to be challenged by medical situations – not a hostile hospital supervisor or or failing the driving test yet again or falling in love with a patient.
Link thought she was another ‘cancer kid’ and doesn’t react well when he finds out she’s actually a doctor on his ward. Maybe he’ll let her help with his music competition online anyway.
Chemo, radiation, bone marrow donation – the terms and realities and after-effects play out among the young patients in the three interns’ caseload. And there are only 2 spots in the residency to follow…
How can she reconcile how the accounting department and medical teams see patients’ cancer treatment options so differently?
If Link’s treatment doesn’t work, how can she deal with being his last love when he is her first?
How will her extended Indian-American family react when they discover that Vish has been her ‘boyfriend’ so long because he’s not ready to come out?
Cancer has touched us all – what are you doing to help?
