Stories From Dr. Keogh’s Patients
Jayne Sadlon Violette
In 2013, when I received my stage 3 breast cancer diagnosis, I (like all cancer patients) experienced a flood of various thoughts and emotions. I felt profound sadness about the possibility that I might not get to see our only daughter, Alexis, meet and marry the man of her dreams. I wanted to see her future, wanted to be with her when she said “yes to the dress,” wanted to see her walk down the aisle to exchange her vows… ALL of that!
Well, this past month, that became a reality, thanks to Dr. “Superman” Keogh and all of you. Not only did I get to witness her marriage to her wonderful husband, Emmanuel Ogbonna, but she also graduated from MUSC with her M.D. and will start her residency in diagnostic radiology in just a few weeks! I can’t tell you how grateful I am to Dr. Keogh and all of you. I remain in remission and will look forward to many more wonderful experiences and memories to be made. Here are some photos of the wedding and graduation, both of which I thought I might now see.
