Buffy Shelton has been running a daycare from her home in Columbus, IN since 1994. When she was diagnosed with cancer, one of the first decisions she had to make was whether to find a care team locally in Columbus, or drive an hour each way to specialists in Indianapolis. Luckily, a new surgeon who specializes in breast cancer was about to join Columbus Regional Health, and she decided to stay close to home. Having her surgery and radiation treatments locally allowed her to continue working and running her business almost without interruption.
"I needed everything to be normal, the same routine day-in and day-out," Shelton said. She managed to balance work throughout her treatment. Following surgery, she was able to time her radiation treatments to her students' naptime (left in the care of her assistant of 18 years), only missing one hour of work each day.
