Patient Experience

Amanda Sheets and her daughters"It's kind of strange and I hate to say this, but I missed going...treatment became my new routine. I missed the receptionists, the nurses, the doctors and how well they took care of me."

Jane Hammond with her dog"I just wasn't bouncing back," she says. "Mentally, I wanted to be walking, but physically, I lacked the energy and strength. Even worse, I began to feel like I would never get to where I wanted to be." Hammond became one of the first patients to utilize a new program from Augusta Health called Strength After Breast Cancer (SABC), a physical therapy regimen developed at the University of Pennsylvania about five years ago. "I'm feeling more and more like the person I used to be before breast cancer, my mobility is very improved. I'm so grateful for Augusta Health and this program."
