    Dr Foster came into our lives in late December 2017. Had a bowel resection in February 2018. Dr Foster put my whole family at ease during this very difficult time. I continue to be under Dr Foster’s care and couldn’t be happier. It’s nice to have such excellent care right here in Omaha. Our community is very lucky to have top notch cancer care in our own back yard. It’s a great comfort to be able to family within arms reach when cancer comes a calling. Our daughter also received a cancer diagnosis 2 years later. Our daughter decided to have her doctors treat her at UNMC too. Neither one of our families have ever second guessed our decisions to have care our at UNMC. UNMC treats not just your cancer but your family’s needs too. If cancer comes a calling in your family like it did ours you can extend your family with treatment at UNMC. UNMC really is a family setting to help your family become whole again after you hear the word cancer. Life is forever moving forward.

    My dad was treated by Dr. Foster after being diagnosed with stage IV small bowel & peritinium cancer. On diagnosis, his estimated prognosis was 6 months. Dr. Foster performed “hot chemo” surgery (14 hour procedure). My dad recently passed, but Dr. Foster gave my family 3 years with our Dad after his diagnosis. My Dad refereed to Dr. Foster as his hero.

    I cannot write enough good things about Dr. Foster. I am cancer free almost one year now and I have seen him on numerous follow up appointments. They don't come any better.
