Letter of thanks: Neath is cancer free thanks to KRMC

Today I am kidney cancer free! Here’s my story:

I was admitted into KRMC hospital on the Fourth of July weekend. After many scans and tests I had my angry gall bladder removed.

In the first scan, a KRMC technician also found a “suspicious mass” on my right kidney. KRMC doctors recommended having a biopsy ASAP.

In August, I had a biopsy in Wisconsin (my healthcare provider is there). The report returned papillary renal cell carcinoma, type I, grade 2, stage 1.

After a successful surgery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I am free of the kidney cancer and part of my kidney thanks to the watchful eye and care at KRMC.

Thank you KRMC for a second chance in life!

Without them catching this cancer early, the doctors said it would have been too late once I had symptoms.

Recovery went well and after almost three months in Wisconsin I am headed home to Kingman kidney cancer free! I truly believe KRMC saved my life.

I give grateful thanks to all the staff in both hospitals, KRMC and UW-Madison.

Their care was exceptional.

My surgeries and recoveries were successful.

The great care was beneficial to my healing process and life.

In appreciation to KRMC for “Catching It Early,”

Rick Neath
