Know there is hope, even if told there is none...

Dear Dr. Lygas,

I thought I would write so other woman in my situation might read this and perhaps they would know there is hope, even if told there is none.

It is my fault, I knew there was a lump in my breast and ignored it for years. It was huge when I finally decided to see someone about it. So off I went to major cancer centers in New York and Philly and even locally at the insistence of my children. They did the biopsy and all the tests and said that it was hopeless. Put me into hospice and hope for the best. At the insistence of my doctor, he wanted me to see Dr. Lygas for another opinion. Although no guarantee, Dr. Lygas felt he could help me. I have a pacemaker, diabetes and high blood pressure and so the surgery had to be done in the hospital because of my medical conditions in addition to the locally advanced cancer.

We started 6 months of chemotherapy and then the surgery. It was hard but I am alive and doing well. My other doctors said I would be dead by now. Dr. Lygas has given me many years of a good quality life. I know the cancer will get me in the end but the precious quality time I have had make me so indebted to Dr. Lygas.

At the end of every visit he gets a bit embarrassed when I give him a big kiss. One of the nicest men you will ever want to know as a patient. Thank you for saving me.

With LOVE,
