Shedding Light on Cancer
Light the Night not only raises money for local cancer care, it sheds light on what is like to get the cancer diagnosis. Several cancer patients have expressed their gratitude and appreciation in regards to being close to home while undergoing treatment. Sidney Health Center’s mission is to help you achieve your highest level of health and well-being. We believe in providing the best care and working collaboratively with area physicians to ensure you get the treatment you need without having to travel long distances.
Darrell and Judy Hokanson share Darrell’s cancer story and the value of having state-of-the-art cancer care within 100 miles.
When my husband’s lung cancer came back, we were devastated. At the time, we were doctoring in Billings. The doctors wanted Darrell to go to Sidney Health Center Cancer Care over other area facilities. We explained to the doctor that there was another facility a lot closer to us, but he said no he wanted us to go to Sidney.
After much discussion with Dr. Pedersen and Dr. Kiehl, they came up with a plan for both chemo and radiation together. It has been a long haul with many ups and downs but thank God the last scan showed the spots that were treated are gone. Darrell is now on a year of immune therapy.
We owe this to all the wonderful staff at Sidney Health Center Cancer Care. We are always treated with such love and respect from everyone. They will be forever friends and have a special place in our hearts.
The center has the most up to date equipment there is to use on their patients, none of which would be possible without the wonderful support of the community. God truly blessed us when the Billings doctor sent us to Sidney Health Center Cancer Care.
God bless you all.
Darrell and Judy Hokanson
