Dr. Souweidane’s Patient Appears in New Ad Campaign

You are here


Danion Jones, a young patient of Dr. Mark Souweidane, is featured in the latest video from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. At age three Danion was near death from a brain tumor, but his mother brought him to Dr. Souweidane at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center. Dr. Souweidane recognized that Danion’s grave condition was not due to his tumor but to infection and was able to help the child recover.  With Danion back from the brink, Dr. Souweidane performed a full day of surgery to remove the tumor and restored the boy to his mom. Watch the video below:

Over the next several years, Danion had a full and joyful life, even appearing at Amateur Night at the Apollo with the Weill Cornell team cheering him on. The tumor continued to grow, and Danion ultimately succumbed.  His mother remains grateful to Dr. Souweidane for allowing her four additional years with her singing, dancing, much-loved child.
