At MMH, our patients speak volumes.

More Time with Family

Hank and Karen Trenkamp of Batesville both know too well the challenges of fighting cancer. Karen, a 13-year breast cancer survivor, was by Hank’s side when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last summer. Fortunately, the couple was relieved to find out he could receive top-notch cancer care close to home. For Hank, that meant less time on the road and more time doing the things he loves … like working on the family farm and spending time with his six grandchildren.

“I received both chemo and radiation at the (Margaret Mary) Cancer Center,” said Hank. “The doctors were excellent and kept me informed on a “farm boy” level I could understand. The nurses were also great – always working around my schedule and providing plenty of education on what to expect next. I’m grateful we have such an incredible facility in our community.”

Fighting cancer wasn’t in the Trenkamps’ life plans, but with the support of their faith, family and our cancer team, their future looks bright. We think that’s pretty incredible!
