At 22 years old, Neale is singing the praises of MGH's Dr. Carmine Simone and his thoracic surgery team.

"I was 20, diagnosed with lung cancer. I was terrified.  All I could think of was would I ever sing again, would I live to see my baby daughter grow up?” said Joseph Neale, who comes from a family of musicians, including his cousin, Juno-award-winning jackSOUL (Haydain Neale). “Dr. Simone at Michael Garron Hospital treated me like his son. I knew he cared and would do all he could to save my life, save my voice. When I woke up in the recovery room, the first thing I tried to do was sing.  I am forever grateful to Dr. Simone for my life and for making it possible for me to fulfill my dream to sing for the world."

Neale's compelling story is testament to the positive life-changing impact of the expertise at MGH.
