“Genesis saved my life.”
Michele Benson will never throw away the Genesis postcard that came in the mail this summer about a free low-dose CT lung cancer screening. It led her to get a CT scan that found her lung cancer at a very early stage. After lung surgery, she is cancer-free, and the Genesis postcard will forever be a family keepsake.
Read her story.
Twice in her life, Michelle Allen has found a lump in her breast. Michelle Allen of Davenport, a breast cancer survivor, has received mammograms and other breast health services with the help of funds raised from the annual Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure.®
The first time, the single mother of three children was diagnosed with breast cancer. That was in 2007, and her months of medical treatment were covered by Medicaid. It was a scary time for her and her sons, but she underwent the months of chemotherapy and radiation with courage and beat the disease.
Genesis Cancer Care Institute now has an online class providing general information about treatments and support services for cancer patients and families.
