Meet Anthony. Grandfather, crossing guard, survivor.

My favorite thing in the world are my grandchildren. When I found out I had lung cancer, my first thought was “how long do I have.” I felt for sure that I wouldn’t be around to watch my grandchildren grow up. There were many things big and small that I questioned, including who would take over for me as the crossing guard at their school. The folks at HOA made me see things differently. Their expertise gave me confidence that I would survive.

Meet Susan. Friend, yoga beginner, survivor.

I was terrified when I found out I had cancer but also knew I was going to fight with everything I had. With the doctors and nurse at HOA by my side, I never gave up hope. Going through chemotherapy is never fun, but I actually found myself looking forward to my visits because of the love and motivation I received from the staff. Everyone from the receptionists to the nurses and doctors were so kind and uplifting. They made me feel like family.

Meet Kate. Teacher, ballroom dancer, survivor.

I’m sure like most women, I was devastated when I learned I had breast cancer. As a teacher, my first instinct was to learn everything I could about treatment. I quickly discovered that HOA was the only provider in Central New York certified by the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Oncology Nursing Society. This assured me that HOA was the right place for me to receive care. After meeting with the experienced and supportive team at HOA, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was back in the classroom and on the dance floor.

Meet Dan. Father, fan, survivor.

I’m only 48 years old, how can I have colon cancer? That was the first thought that went through my mind when I got the news. After getting over the initial shock, I immediately went into survival mode, knowing that there was no way I was going to let cancer beat me. Thankfully, everyone at HOA shared my fighting spirit.
