Jan's Story

Patients Share Their Personal Experience with UH Seidman Cancer Center

Patient Success Stories - JanWhen cancer was found on Jan Apathy’s annual mammogram, she knew she needed doctors who truly cared about returning her to wellness. Experienced oncologists and an empowering survivors’ group were just around the corner from Jan’s job at Padua Franciscan High School, where she inspired students and parents alike throughout her successful treatment.

After treatment, Jan reflected on the skill and compassion of surgeon Trudi Brown, MD, saying, “Dr. Brown was God’s gift to me”. And when Dr. Brown isn’t holding her hand, Jan’s husband of 28 years is by her side.
