My New Normal

Winter months are notorious for cold and flu season, and in February 2016, Emily Hawkins was sick. Without a primary doctor, she went to an urgent care center. Within nine days, she returned to the clinic five times, walking away with diagnoses of strep throat and thrush – but finding no relief for her malaise or the headaches and fatigue she felt. Emily went to Boone Hospital Center to have some tests done.

A Happy Ending

Dana first noticed a lump in her neck when she was singing in the car. She was driving alone and casually scratched an itch on her neck. Her first thought was that it must be another infection causing her lymph nodes to swell, just like one that happened earlier that year. But instead of going down over time, the lump got bigger.

Free Screening, Priceless Outcome

Ron Gladbach was careful. As a longtime farmer and someone with a family history of skin cancer, he knew he was at high risk. He often checked his skin for signs of cancer, focusing on areas frequently exposed to the sun, like his face and ears. 

Supportive Care
When someone is nearing the end of life, there is nothing more comforting than the closeness of friends and family. This is the idea behind the new double bed at the Stewart Cancer Center at Boone Hospital.
Teacher Says “Don’t Put Off Screening”
Kathleen Metter knew when she turned 50 that she should schedule a routine colonoscopy. As a biology teacher at Hickman High School, where she teaches 10th graders, Kathleen wasn’t squeamish. “Nobody likes to talk about the colon, but it’s a part of us. But everybody’s busy and has to find the time for screening.” 
From Cavity To Cancer
Until late 2013, John Johnson had lived a remarkably healthy life. Even as he neared 70 years old, his body remained in near-peak condition. John credited his health to a lifetime of hard work, martial arts, long bike rides and natural medicine practices. At the time, it seemed like his only weak spot was his upper set of teeth, which had become broken and infected.  
January Employee of the Month is inspired by her patients

When Mung Chin saw a job posting for an oncology staff nurse in late 2010, she thought “That might be something I like.” She applied, interviewed and joined Boone Hospital Center in January 2011.

Superb Service from Portal to Post…A Boone Experience

On January 6, 2014, my life partner entered Boone Hospital Center to undergo a radical prostatectomy. The day before, one of the coldest days in the New Year, church had been cancelled, and his plans for announcing the impending operation squashed, he settled in at home for the long wait to Monday’s appointment.

A big fan of the Mizzou Tigers, Lisa Tribble of Unionville had long held plans to attend the university’s Homecoming festivities this year.

However, Homecoming is taking on a new significance as Lisa will be named the Homecoming game’s honorary captain, representing cancer patients at Boone Hospital’s Stewart Cancer Center.
