We Are Winship - Survivors From Day One

Winship Cancer Institute

It has been said that “once you choose hope, anything is possible.” We know that our patients put a lot of time into selecting the cancer therapy and care team that are right for them. Countless hours of research into the latest and greatest cancer treatments and technologies, investigation into who offers those treatments, and evaluation of awards and designations and track records of patient satisfaction. That is why we have produced a video that features real patients and their experiences and perceptions of the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.

Lung Transplant - One Woman's Success Story

Harriet Boger, Lung Transplant Patient Storya

"As I write this blog, I am on Marco Island with my sister. We played 18 holes of golf, walking the course and pulling our carts. We also play tennis every afternoon and have played both bocce ball and croquet too. I walk on the beach every day (of course, always wearing a cover-up and hat as directed by my doctor), and reflect on my life. This is definitely something I could not have done the 2 years before my transplant. I am so thankful for every breath that I take, and want to share my story to give people hope."
