Dr Stylianos,
It has been almost 23 years and you were the Surgeon who saved my daughter Kristen’s Cuneo’s life at Boston Children’s Hospital. She will be graduating college this May and tonight was asking about the doctor that saved her life. She has turned into quite a beautiful young woman both inside and out and both Paul and I are proud of her. I still remember that horrific night and the words you said yo us, if you see me in an hour feh did not make it. Well, thank God and your skilled hands she did and I cannot thank you enough! There are no words. I am now on a third kidney transplant and doing wonderful and have amazing family members. Kristen has learning difficulties but wanted to go to a college where she had to learn yo advocate for herself and she has done just great. She is an A student! I started a nonprofit Wings and Hooves Therapeutic Riding,inc to help children, young adults, veterans and families and women in transition with numerous challenges through the horses due in part to Kristen struggles but with my own health issues with Systemic Lupus and kidney failure. Kristen is an accomplished equestrian and loves these animals. We still visit Brighman & Women’s NICU and Sandy is still there and cries every time she sees Kristen. I thank god and you are mentioned often. GOD bless! Karen Cuneo
