Holiday Inspiration from a Spunky 80 Year-Old Patient

Patients are often inspiring, and at this time of year, it’s especially great to hear about those who overcome obstacles and use their experiences to make a difference. One of KHP’s recent patients in the Central/East market has made quite an impact on that team.

This spunky 80 year-old is one of the KHP team’s most compliant patients, always getting needed preventive screenings, including her mammogram. Last year, the patient had an abnormal mammogram, was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a bilateral mastectomy. Just a month later, she was diagnosed with lung cancer and had a wedge resection.

“No matter our discussion, she is upbeat and optimistic about the future,” said Teresa Crowell, RN Health Coach. “It’s always a joy to talk with her and I’m never surprised by the exciting things she is doing. Today she shared her plans to go to a country music concert in December!”
