May 9, 2020
A lifetime of coaching and playing baseball has taught Gary Weinstein many things.
The 63-year-old Takoma Park resident knows it’s important to train well, stay positive and follow the advice of coaches. And he knows that no individual can succeed without support from a talented team.
So when life threw Weinstein a curve ball in the form of a frightening throat cancer diagnosis, he brought the philosophies he honed on the baseball diamond to Suburban Hospital. There, he found a supportive and dedicated team led by Brandi Page, assistant professor of radiation oncology and molecular radiation sciences for the Johns Hopkins Radiation Oncology Department at Suburban Hospital.
