Together We Can Achieve the Best Possible Outcomes
Below is a letter from a patient with a follow-up from Dr. Gill…
My name is Janice Dunlap and I am a 49 year old mother of 3. In addition to being a devoted wife and mom I spent my entire adult life focused on my own fitness and nutrition.
Some months ago, I found a lump in my breast. Less than 2 weeks later I was in Dr. Gill’s office at Gresham Women’s Healthcare. Dr. Gill examined me and said “You need to have a mammogram tomorrow!” That led to biopsies and within days I was told the results: stage two breast cancer.
Dr. Gill was the first professional to tell me that I would have an advantage in dealing with the treatment and recovery, due to my dedication to fitness. I had my doubts, but resolved to meet the challenge. With the help and encouragement of my team of doctors, nurses and family, I managed to stay positive. I came through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation and continued to work out and run through it all.
As a survivor, I look forward to supporting the Race for the Cure together with my same support system including my family, friends, Dr. Gill and Gresham Women’s Healthcare.
