I Was in Good Hands From the Beginning
Monday, Nov 19, 2018
For 55-year-old Sheryl Ison, beating breast cancer is a family tradition. With a mother and two aunts who’ve battled (and beat) the disease, this Milan resident was ready to fight when she was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. Following a mastectomy, she soon scheduled an appointment with Margaret Mary’s cancer team to devise a treatment plan that included both chemo and radiation therapy.
“A cancer diagnosis can stop you in your tracks,” said Sheryl, “but I knew all along I was going to be ok. My mom received her cancer treatment at Margaret Mary, and I knew I wanted to do the same. You couldn’t find a kinder, more accommodating staff if you tried. If I had questions, I was able to call at anytime. They also let me plan my radiation treatments around my schedule so I wouldn’t have to miss much work. I felt like I was in good hands from the beginning.”
Today, Sheryl’s prognosis is positive and she looks forward to spending many more years with her family and friends.
