Patient Testimonials

Bonni’s Story: “I felt like I was on a boat and someone was steering the boat, otherwise I was lost.”

In April 2015, Bonni was diagnosed with breast cancer.  As a resident of Sherman, CT, she reached out to Cindy Tyler at New Milford Hospital Diebold Family Cancer Center. 

Listen to her journey from diagnosis to recovery and the support she received from the care givers at New Milford Hospital.

Donna’s Story: “Just the amount of time [Dr. Winter] spent with me was so reassuring.”

After a recommendation for her primary care doctor, Donna got a low-dose CAT scan screening for lung cancer given her age and smoking history.  When the results showed something that needed investigation, Donna went to Norwalk Hospital.

After discussing her options with her healthcare team, Donna had robotic surgery and was well on her way to recovery supported by her friends and family at Norwalk Hospital.  Donna was able to go back to singing, tennis, and resume her life.

Listen to her story and about the partnership that saved her life.
