"They actually cared as much about me as a person as they did about curing the cancer."

"Thirteen years ago at age 35, I was diagnosed with cancer. For several months I went through extensive treatment. I had radiation everyday for 12 weeks. I was really happy I could stay in Bakersfield for all my treatments.

I was blown away by how attentive Dr. Patel and his staff were. They listened and paid attention to everything. They really cared about me as a person.

At one point, I didn't know if I was going to live or die. That formed me to contemplate my entire life. I felt God had given me another chance. So I changed. i am more sympathetic and appreciate life so much more. Heck, I won't even step on a bug.

Now I take situations head on. I surround myself with positive people. I wouldn't want to go back to the person I once was. And I have to say, Dr. Patel even supported me in my decision to see myself differently."
