“Those of us who have fought the cancer battle will never forget the day we learned the frightening news. In February 2010, I was diagnosed with stage 3-B inflammatory breast cancer, a very rare and aggressive form of cancer.
My cancer protocol was never intended to be easy — totally changing the game of life, especially during treatment. During the past 11 months I’ve experienced four months of chemotherapy treatment, three surgeries and 25 radiation treatments at UAMS. And through it all, I knew I had put myself into the hands of the very best caregivers. My cancer team not only aggressively treated the disease, but they also helped me heal my heart and soul from the fears of life-threatening illness.
Today I am cancer free — a proud graduate of sorts from the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. It was an honor and privilege for my daughter and me to participate in the very meaningful Seed of Hope ceremony to celebrate the end of treatment and a cancer-free outcome. And while we look forward to better and healthier day ahead, we will forever be grateful for the medical and spiritual healing found at UAMS.” Read her blog post about the celebration.
