CTCA Survivor Stories
We care for you like family.
At CTCA, we believe one of the best ways you can learn about us is to experience all that we offer through the eyes of some of our patients. On this page, you’ll find excerpts from the real stories of our patients. These are just some of our champions. They discovered the comprehensive treatment and unwavering commitment they needed in their fight against cancer at CTCA.
No case is typical. You should not expect to experience these results.
Get to know CTCA through the interactive stories of some of our patients and employees. Listen to several patients describe their experiences with CTCA, from their first call to our Oncology Information Specialists to aftercare. Then, meet some of the people who played a critical part in the care they received in our hospitals.
Robbie Robinson Lymphoma Cancer Survivor
“Within the next week, CTCA had done what had taken the other facility weeks to accomplish. I was diagnosed, staged, given my options of how I could receive treatment for the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma I had, told what my prognosis was and assured that I was not alone in my fight. I was on a team now—which I was to be a big part of—and we were going to do everything possible to beat this disease.”
Peggy Kessler Pancreatic Cancer Survivor
“The first thing I remember was entering the lobby of CTCA and seeing the tree of survivors. I said I’m going to get my name on that tree! CTCA began treating me right away for my infection, got my pain under control and confirmed the diagnosis. I could not believe how fast they were able to do all the tests. They did more in one day at CTCA than my hospital back home did in a week.”
Toby Frey Squamous Cell Cancer Survivor
“Cancer Treatment Centers of America uses everything at their disposal to fight for you. This is not a normal hospital. This is a place that loves you, takes you under their wing. They are concerned with what happens to you. They are concerned with what happens to you five years down the road. What a novel idea!”
