Cancer center plus for area
To the editor:
On Jan. 7, I got to ring the bell. This means I received my last radiation treatment for lobular carcinoma in situ: Cancer cells in the milk ducts.
I was fortunate to be able to receive these treatments at the Tony Teramana Cancer Center in Steubenville. How fortunate we are to have this treatment center so close to home. We don’t have to travel to Pittsburgh or Wheeling for treatment.
While visiting the cancer center during the past month, I was treated with the most dignity and respect and received compassionate care from all of the personnel there. The care begins at the temperature check station. You move on to the office staff, who check you in for your appointment. When you are ready for treatment, the young ladies who administer the treatment cannot be any nicer. Here, too, I was treated with respect, dignity and compassion.
Once a week, I saw Dr. John Hyland, who answered any questions I had.
Being treated for cancer of any kind can be a very scary ordeal. The entire staff at the center made my experience very doable because of their professionalism and compassionate care. Thank you all.
