Mary learned that she had breast cancer when she was 35 weeks pregnant. She was induced 12 days later and welcomed her baby girl into the world. She had chemo, then surgery and finally started receiving radiation treatments at Minneapolis Radiation Oncology. She recently ended her treatments and is back at work, where she is a dentist.
“The staff at MRO really know what they’re doing. I have so much confidence in them from a medical standpoint. But they wanted to know about me as a person, too. They wanted to know every day that I was doing okay. They really looked after me,” said Mary.
When Ron was diagnosed with anal cancer, his faith was what he turned to first. Second, was his radiation oncologist at Minneapolis Radiation Oncology who assured him that everyone on his team would be working to help him get better.
Speaking about his team at MRO Ron says, “God put them in my path. I knew I was going there for treatment but then it was just a joy to go. I knew I was going to see some friends that cared about me. Each and every one helped me through my journey.”
Brad & Melissa's Story
When Melissa was diagnosed with breast cancer, she knew exactly who to turn to—her dad, Brad. Brad had prostate cancer in 2011 and had received radiation at Minneapolis Radiation Oncology, so he advised her to go there as well.
“I would recommend anybody to go to MRO if they had to go through cancer. Because they treat you like family and what more can you say?” said Brad.
Melissa added, “ I think that for somebody to treat you with as much respect as we were treated, for them just to be like you were family to them—that’s important to me.”
