"I was impressed with Massey’s team approach to developing and coordinating my treatment. The entire team of breast cancer experts was in one location working together — my surgeon, oncologist, radiologist, nurses and others. I didn’t have to travel to various specialists all over town and worry whether they were communicating with each other. The personalized experience made me feel like I had a second family at Massey."
Bob found that after successfully completing cancer treatment at Massey, his desire to live life to the fullest was a powerful motivator to regain his fitness: "It sounds trite, but the smell of flowers, the sunrise, it all takes on a new dimension after cancer, and I don’t want to take it for granted." This renewed sense of life led Bob to Africa to fulfill dreams of seeing the pyramids in Egypt and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The grueling eight-day climb brought him to the summit in time to ring in New Year’s Day, five years after surviving cancer.
