Donna lives in Mineral Wells, WV, with her husband and two daughters. She started noticing something wasn’t right and her primary care physician referred her to get a colonoscopy, where they found a mass. Dr. Abhyankar, an oncologist with Memorial Health System, referred Donna to Dr. Bhati, an oncology surgeon in whom he had complete trust. Dr. Bhati encouraged her to go get a second opinion, so she went to one of the country’s most famous cancer centers. They could do the surgery and treatment, but she would have to be there five days a week for six to eight weeks. She just couldn’t be away from her family for that amount of time.

Dr. Bhati could do the same surgery and she wouldn’t have to miss out on her life here at home. Donna believes Memorial Health System is a wonderful asset and she wants more people to know that you don’t have to leave home to get treatment.
