You’ve Got a Friend

Last November Michelle Ross confronted breast cancer with the full gamut of treatment at AMH – and feels blessed by every bit of it.

“All of the doctors, nurses and staff were so encouraging,” Ross said. “I have to be honest, I cried when I lost my hair. But I trusted God the whole time. Cancer is an eye-opener, but with God’s help you can make it through anything.”

Soon Ross needed help with another challenge. The brakes on her vehicle went out and estimated repair costs were higher than her monthly income. Nurses Malea Watson and Toni Brummett referred Ross to the “You’ve Got a Friend” fund, established by caring individuals and organizations to help breast cancer patients focus on healing and recovery.

“It’s a long journey through surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Ms. Ross has been a pillar of faith and has had unwavering trust in our team at AMH,” said Dr. Joel Simmons, radiation oncologist

Today Michelle is on the road again, letting faith guide her through life’s bumps and turns.
