When Seamus learned he had prostate cancer, he had three choices. Do watchful waiting, undergo surgery, or have radiation. By choosing radiation at nearby UPMC Whitfield in Waterford, he was able to treat his cancer — without interrupting his life. Through treatments, Seamus was his usual good spirited self. And today he’s in good health.Cancer Patient Services
When Aideen learned she had cancer, she had a choice to make. Go to Dublin or turn to UPMC Whitfield in Waterford for its network of global expertise. She chose the latter, and the experience changed her life. Grateful for the care she received, Aideen was compelled to give back. Today, you’ll see her driving others to have their radiotherapy treatments on the free patient transport service provided by the South East Radiotherapy Trust.About Our Support Services
A few years following Seamus’ treatment for prostate cancer, his wife Philomena was diagnosed with breast cancer. She also chose to get her treatment at the UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre, which helped reassure Seamus that his wife was getting the highest quality treatment by the same caring team that had cared for him. The couple, both now in good health, enjoy an active social life in their local community.Cancers We Treat
