I have cancer, Multiple Myeloma. At age 75, I chose to avoid bone marrow transplant therapy. Though I was frightened by the diagnosis, Dr. Anis Toumeh quickly put my mind at rest, noting that many other forms of treatment have been successful in controlling MM. I have been plagued with chronic anemia for a few years, prompting Dr. Toumeh to move into treatment while I still lingered in smoldering phase of Multiple Myeloma. After only four rounds of fairly comfortable treatment, I am making red blood cells again and having more energy these days!
I credit the progress to Dr. Toumeh’s invaluable expertise as an oncologist/hematologist and his ability to adapt treatment suited to my personal needs. Dr. Toumeh and his nursing staff have compassion for all their patients. The light atmosphere created by the nurses in the chemo room makes my treatment days so pleasant. My family and I have great confidence that my treatment at Central Care Cancer Center in Garden City is top-notch. My care is not compromised because I chose to be treated close to home. Thank you, Central Care Cancer Center!
My family has been a part of the Central Care Cancer Center for the past 10 years.
In 2008 my younger brother, John was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. At that time we were introduced to Dr. Leo and his staff and I cannot tell you how special we felt. We weren’t another number, we were treated as if we were the only patient/family there. (more…)
Marcie Harris Charles & Megan Charles Kramer
For Marcie Harris Charles, 60, and her daughter, Megan Charles Kramer, 37, receiving treatment for their very different breast cancers so close to home has made a huge impact on their families, as well as themselves. Charles, who lives in Dodge City, and Kramer, who hails from Cimarron, began the breast cancer battles in 2010, when Kramer was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) — a rare and difficult breast cancer to treat due to its sheer aggressive nature to spread throughout the body.

I am so grateful for the awesome care Dr. Fesen and the whole staff have given me these past 15 years. If it hadn’t been for cancer my path would not have crossed any of you. Thanks for your part in my life. Dr. Fesen and God make a Great Team!
