Deidra Edgecomb was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in February of 2022. She immediately began treatment with our team at the Cancer Care Center. Our team members really bonded with our patients especially during COVID, when we had a strict ‘no visitor policy’ in place for the safety all. That meant patients had to experience their treatments on their own, which made a difficult time even harder.
"I was only able to have my husband with me for my last three visits; the rest of the time I was solo. During those thirteen chemo treatments, when I was there all alone, all the nurses become my rocks. Even though I was alone in terms of family and friends, I never once felt alone because of the amazing nurses, nurse practitioners, and doctors who work at the Cancer Care Center. Their compassion and love for their patients is so obvious and it shows, day in and day out," Deidra said.
Fortunately, Deidra recently had her last treatment, and the visitor ban had been lifted. When she came out of the infusion area she was met with a large group of loved ones who surprised her with festive balloons and heartfelt messages to celebrate this final milestone in her fight against cancer.
every milestone counts!”
