Comprehensive, lifesaving care.
Thanks to care received at Huntington Hospital Cancer Center, Anita Chavez
is now cancer-free. When she found a lump during a breast self-examination,
“I knew immediately that it was cancer,” she says. “I
had a history of developing cysts — and the lump I found felt different.”
Anita’s physician referred her to our Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast
Center. Diagnostic tests confirmed that the lump she had found was cancer
— and she went on to receive treatment here, via breast surgery
as well as radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Over the course of her care, Anita took advantage of some of the many supportive
services — including acupuncture and hypnotherapy — available
to our cancer patients. She also turned to our Constance G. Zahorik Appearance
Center for help managing the aesthetic side effects of cancer treatment.
“Huntington Hospital Cancer Center treats the whole person —
mind, body and spirit,” Anita says. “My entire care team was
devoted to helping me fight breast cancer and I can’t thank them
