The one hundred honoree: Tessa Goldsmith, MS, CCC-SLP, BRS-S

Mass General Giving

“I received fantastic treatment from all of the staff at the Mass General Cancer Center and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary; but I am particularly grateful for the service and support I received from Tessa Goldsmith. Her excellent clinical care enabled me to quickly improve my speech and swallowing following surgery and treatment. I attribute much of my quick recovery to her attentive care and creative solutions.

Tessa also took the time to listen to me and help me in all aspects of my cancer treatment, which is a bewildering, complicated and terrifying prospect for most patients. A patient must deal with multiple doctors and care providers and choose among frequently conflicting treatment options. Tessa helped me wade through this complexity, understand my options, and make sound decisions. These activities went well beyond Tessa’s job description, yet she happily volunteered her support. I thank her for all she did to help me get better faster and ease my way to recovery.”
