Dr. Cerfolio,

I just heard about your wife passing and I am saddened to hear of your loss. My name is Teresa Berher and you removed a lung tumor from me in July of 2008. I thank God every day that I found you when and I was researching surgeons. On the more human side, I remember you and your boys shared a love of baseball and that you spoke very fondly of your family. I know you have thousands of patients but I just wanted to tell you that I am praying for you. God bless you and your family.
