Survivorship care brings peace of mind

0

Award-winning photographer Richard Conboy understands the value of enjoying the moment, both in his pictures and in his life. Conboy had Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a teenager, and 40 years later, he beat colon cancer with the help of the Dana-Farber.

Conboy joined a support group for cancer survivors after having the disease for the second time. He receives survivorship care, he says, more for his wife’s peace of mind than his own. He feels safer being monitored, and knows he is good hands.

Meet Richard Conboy in this video.

Tune into WEEI or NESN to hear Conboy live on the www.JimmyFundRadioTelethon.org on Wednesday, August 22, 2012. He is currently scheduled to be on during the 5 p.m. hour on WEEI.
