"Waiting for the results of my biopsy felt like torture. When I heard "breast cancer," my greatest fears were realized. I was scared but because I work in the imaging department at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital, I also knew I was in the right place for exceptional care. I'm grateful to Janet Dehoux, Nurse Practitioner and my oncologist, the late Dr. Mark Ellis for exceptional care.

Because of them, my surgeon and everyone at Riverside, I am thrilled to say, I'm cancer free. My family and I had so much to be thankful for. We took a cruise to Bermuda to celebrate my victory over breast cancer, my 25th wedding anniversary, and my daughter's engagement.

With the outpouring of love I felt at Riverside Walter Reed, I have a renewed sense of what really matters. Walter Reed Hospital is unmatched in their commitment to the care of their patients."
