Growing up, Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe's mother would tell her she was a problem solver, an agile thinker, and bound to do hard things. Dr. Robyne's mother had steadfast confidence in her child; she knew her child was an extraordinary being. What she didn't know, however, was that those words would save her daughter's life.
