Patient Story

The Susan Varner Story:When Susan was first admitted to The University of Kansas Cancer Center's Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) unit this past year, our family was immediately impressed with the knowledge, efficiency, and assurance they provided. Dr. Ganguly was not only expecting our arrival, but was already familiar with Susan's case, and instantly made us feel as though the team was in control of her situation. By the end of her first day there, we had a plan established for her treatment, and diagnostic screenings. Because of the rarity of Susan's disease, we knew we needed to be in a cutting edge facility that could offer her the most advanced options possible. Her case was treated with urgency, and expertise. We were impressed by the BMT team's willingness to consult with experts worldwide to come up with the best possible solutions for Susan. This proved to us that we were in the right place, and that Susan's case truly mattered to her doctors. To this day, we remain grateful for the matchless quality of care Susan received from her doctors and nurses during her stay in the University of Kansas Cancer Center's BMT unit. We continue to be impressed with the progress, and truly innovative research being done to improve treatments, and eradicate the effects of blood cancer at both the University of Kansas Cancer Center, and the University of Kansas Medical Center.
