About the patients in this campaign
Melissa and Bella
My birth experience delivering Bella at Anne Arundel Medical Center was a very positive experience – in fact, it was a breeze. Even though this was our second child, my husband and I took a parenting class as a refresher course, and we would definitely recommend it. Our instructor was informative, warm and entertaining.
Aileen and Christina
Aileen’s early-stage cancer was treated successfully with surgery and radiation at The Breast Center at Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute. She completed her final radiation treatment on November 1st, 2008—the 18th birthday of her daughter, Christina—and has been cancer-free for more than five years, which means she is at low risk for her cancer to return.
Chuck and family
Chuck Raines and his wife Trang have run six marathons together since 2011. They don’t smoke, avoid junk food and stay active with their kids. A heart attack was the last thing on the healthy 53-year-old’s mind. But he found out that it can happen to anybody.
Brenda and Dorothy
Sisters Brenda Lewis and Dorothy King-Curry may have different stories, but they’ve come to the same conclusion: you don’t have to live with fibroid tumors. “I waited too many years,” Brenda says. “My fibroids were leaning against my bladder and my situation just got worse.” When Brenda first saw Briana Walton, MD, urogynecologist at AAMC’s Women’s Center for Pelvic Health, she was having problems with incontinence.
