Hearing I'd needed surgery, radiation and chemotherapy was hard to accept, but the doctors at OHA assured me they've had great success treating my type of illness...
I will never forget the moment my doctor told me I had cancer. The shock and disbelief circled my throat creating a huge lump that quickly sank into my stomach. My hope that this was an infected lymph node turned into fear that my life was in jeopardy.
Thankfully, my OHA doctor was both kind and brilliant. He quickly reassured me they've had significant success treating my type of throat cancer. He explained that I would need surgery along with radiation and chemotherapy, but walked me through the side effects and ways to manage them. Knowing he had a solid plan put my mind at ease.
They were careful to send me to the right facilities where caring technicians administered each treatment with precision and expertise. My side effects were minimal and I recovered quickly. The OHA staff were there for me to answer questions, help me understand how to manage any problems, or schedule urgent appointments. After a few months, I feel back to my old self again, but with even more vigor. My last PET scan was clear, so now they consider me a cancer survivor! Thank you OHA!
