Kidney cancer survivors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) often like to share their stories with others who are fighting the disease. They recall when they first received a kidney cancer diagnosis. And, they talk about the many experiences they’ve had at CTCA—from meeting with doctors and other clinicians, to undergoing kidney cancer treatment, to bonding with fellow patients and their caregivers.
Below is an excerpt from Henry Lucero’s personal account of receiving treatment for stage IV renal cell cancer, a form of kidney cancer, at our hospital in Zion, Illinois.
“My doctors at CTCA were all great. I could tell that they were concerned about me as an individual. They did everything they could to make me comfortable and to let me know how things stood as we went along. I didn’t have to guess what was going on, or what was going to be the next thing that happened. The information was there so that we understood what we were going to go through. It took a lot of stress and questioning out of the procedures.”
