Valerie Brown | Throat Cancer Survivor

Celebrating Life & Hope

“After having chemo and radiation for throat cancer, I was in a lot of pain. I was referred to Dr. Harrington at the Palliative Care Clinic in the hopes that she could help get my pain under control. She found a medication that works for me, and, by the grace of the Lord, I’m doing well.

I’ve always had my faith in God, but now it’s a whole lot stronger. When they said I had cancer, I told the doctors to do what they had to do. The good Lord would take care of me. Sometimes I have to remind my family there’s no reason to be sad. Just keep a smile on your face, have a good attitude and remember God is in control.”
