Patient Comments (1)
in Holiday, FL |
in 1984-1987 dr Foster removed a cancerous tumor from my mouth,followed by more surgery for neck tumors,then radiation to head and neck finally a radical neck dissection as the cancer had spread to several lymph nodes. My outlook at age 44 then was a 25% chance at surviving 5 years. I am now 75 years old,with 2 sons, 4 grand children, and 5 great grand children. my husband passed last year after 56 years of marriage. Although the radical scared me for life I feel blessed thanks to dr. Foster
