“Drs. Danish and Nadeem knew a lot about the treatment options for my specific diagnosis,” Parker says. “My nurses were fantastic, too. They followed up with me frequently, and whenever I called with a question, they got me an answer as soon as possible.”
Parker made a goal to exercise, even for just a few minutes, every day she had radiation therapy. She also prioritized time with her colleagues, friends and partner.
“My goal was to keep my routine as normal as possible throughout my treatment regimen,” Parker says. “It was hard some days, but I always made time for physical activity and get-togethers with friends and colleagues. My support system helped me get through some of the worst times.”
