I am just over a year from bilateral invasive ductoral carcinoma surgery. It took me by surprise with no family history and diagnosed with bilateral at the same time. It's been a whirlwind 15 months. Thinking back at every phone call, appointment, and decision that had to be made before the Aug 8th 2018 surgery leaves me breathless sometimes. How did I do it? How did I work out all the appointments and continue to work? How did I not crumble at the thought of what was ahead? Did I make the right medical decisions? Did I get all my paperwork done correctly? Will I need to make last minute decisions with no time to research (which I had done extensively for two months) What do I do if surgery doesn't produce clear margins? Do I change my strategy? Well, it just came down to having faith I made the right choices, go thru with each step of the process and have trust in myself and my medical team. So NANA'S HOPE is that money recieved from benefits like this will make my grandchildrens future a little more worry free from the horrible words being said to them...you have cancer! Thank you for any donation amount.
Join the party when 3,000 walkers and runners rock the Seacoast Cancer 5K on Sunday, September 22 in Dover, NH. One of the region’s largest fundraising events, it’s a celebration of life and the lifesaving work of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s Seacoast Cancer Center.
The Seacoast Cancer 5K is a positive experience from beginning to end, with hundreds of neighbors, friends and family lining the route to cheer. And at the start/finish line, you’ll find music, food and activities for the kids. Best of all, every dollar raised supports cancer care right here in our community.
Proceeds from the Seacoast Cancer 5K support the Survivorship, Health and Wellness Program at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital which extends the clinical expertise needed to develop and monitor care plans for the growing number of survivors. These services help patients regain and improve their health for the long term and are individualized, based on their specific needs. Care plans may include things like smoking cessation programs, exercise and physical rehabilitation, genetic testing, as well as seminars and workshops for both survivors and their families.
