Many people who receive cancer treatment at our hospitals like to share their stories. They recall when they first received a cancer diagnosis, the first time they met with their team of experienced doctors and other clinicians at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), and what it was like to go through cancer treatment.
Dean Armstrong is a stomach cancer survivor who received treatment at our Illinois hospital. Below is an excerpt from his personal story.
"The experience at CTCA was so different from where I was at previously. CTCA specifically catered my care to me. All along, my doctors were very good at explaining things and keeping me informed. They told me how my tumor markers were doing, how the scans looked, etc. They spent a great deal of time with me. As long as I had questions, my doctors would stay there and give me all of the information I asked for and more. That made a big difference. They were truly concerned about me."
