“It’s a true testament to how great they are there,” Amanda says. “Even though I was so run down, I would still come down to Ozaukee because I knew I was getting awesome care. When you’re going through something like breast cancer, that’s all that matters.”

Would you travel far to receive the best health care?

If you were facing breast cancer, you would.

That’s why Amanda drove more than two hours round-trip from her home to Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital Ozaukee in Mequon every week for her treatment.

“It’s a true testament to how great they are there,” Amanda says. “Even though I was so run down, I would still come down to Ozaukee because I knew I was getting awesome care. When you’re going through something like breast cancer, that’s all that matters.”

Amanda trusted us and called us to care for her.
