Barb Guelcher can tell you first hand of the fear and anxiety that swept over her when she was diagnosed with cancer. Over the years she had accompanied others to the Regional Cancer Center for their treatment.

James Roden is glad to be alive today after a very difficult diagnosis of advanced esophageal cancer. He is aware that the prognosis for patients with this type of cancer is not very good. “If I wouldn’t have had the chemo and radiation therapy at the cancer center before my surgery, it would have been a different story,” Roden says.
