Matthew from Cedar Rapids portrait

“I sought a second opinion at Holden.”

“The welcome and care I’ve received from the staff at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center makes me feel like a human instead of just a number. I never knew how important this factor would be, but it truly is.”

Matthew sought a second opinion based on the recommendation of a friend who is a nurse. He says Holden’s nurses have played a key role alongside his doctors in making him feel at his best during treatments for stage 4 esophageal cancer.
