Gateway to Hope throws lifelines to those who have heard the four dreaded words, “You have breast cancer” and who are frightened because they have nowhere to turn to for the treatment they need to survive. Gateway to Hope not only provides a “roadmap for your cancer journey”…….we actually provide the treatment…….beginning with a lumpectomy or mastectomy followed by radiation, chemotherapy, medication and reconstruction, if necessary. Each case is handled individually based on the person’s specific diagnosis. And all of this is done by top professionals in their fields at no cost to the patient.
Since our founding in 2005 by Drs. David Caplin and Marlys Schuh, our network of Partners and Providers has successfully treated over 360 patients! In addition to treatment the GTH nursing staff also provides the tender, loving care and guidance that is so important at this stressful time in the patient’s life. In 2012, Gateway to Hope provided care for 68 new patients and continued to provide care for another 125 existing patients.
The road isn’t easy for anyone diagnosed with cancer, but GTH makes it possible for those who find themselves in this “I can’t believe it’s me” situation to realize that one day soon they, too, can join the ranks of survivors.
Hope is one of the finest medicines around and that’s what Gateway to Hope provides for those who have heard those four dreaded words, “You have breast cancer”.
