Cancer wasn’t a word Lois VanTuinen wanted to hear when she was referred to Dr. Larry McCahill. But with a specialized treatment plan developed by one of the area’s only surgical oncologists, it wasn’t a word Lois had to fear. Lois’ chemotherapy not only shrunk her tumor, but also helped remove lingering cancer cells in her body. Dr. McCahill then performed a whipple procedure—a complex surgery that isolated the tumor and created clear margins in order to avoid recurring tumor growth. Lois is grateful to Dr. McCahill for such good results and is confident about her future.
