Oncology Patient Story – Robin Bean
Robin remembers clearly getting the call about her diagnosis. As she put it, “I was cooking dinner when the call came in from the Oncology department at Platte Valley. I could tell she was emotional – it wasn’t easy for her to tell me. Then she said something that still sticks with me. We will take care of you Robin. You are not alone.”
For Robin, it was not easy to ask for help. However when she was diagnosed with breast cancer she knew she needed it. Platte Valley’s staff was there to listen and provide not only the best medical care - they also offered the support services required when getting a cancer diagnosis. Robin attends a support group two times a month and has formed some special friendships.
Robin described the “unknown” as the hardest part of her cancer journey and how cancer impacts every part of your body.
As she put it, “I could be having a bad day, a very bad day and when I walked into Platte Valley for treatment I knew I would be welcomed with a smile from the nurse – who knew just what to do. I knew I was in great care right in my own community – excellent, knowledgeable and compassionate professionals”.
Robin is now in recovery, doing well and still receives her ongoing care at Platte Valley Medical Center.
