Baptist Health Floyd - October 2021
Jill Van Fossen-Wesp has worked in the radiology department at Baptist Health Floyd hospital in New Albany, Indiana for 28 years. Leeanne Minton has worked in the department for 12 years. In 2020, they both were diagnosed with breast cancer.
In this article by Indiana’s News and Tribune, Jill and Leeanne discuss how navigating cancer themselves has deepened their compassion for and commitment to their patients, as they both have continued to work. They also detail how helpful it was to have the support of their employer and colleagues, and how deciding to disclose their diagnoses has influenced their work.
“I have always loved my job and been compassionate toward patients,” Van Fossen-Wesp said, “but definitely having breast cancer has made me more compassionate.”
“We are very open about what we chose to do,” Minton said, “but there are many options out there. I want to make sure the patient is aware of all their options. They have to make their own decision, and do what they want to do.”
