Grateful Patient Series: Dr. Gaetane Michaud with Noah and Lesli Schwartz

Noah Schwartz began experiencing a heavy cough in April 2021. Within days, physicians diagnosed the 24-year-old from Jupiter, Fla., with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer that invades the body’s lymph nodes, which are part of the immune system.
