Be inspired! Meet Melanie McCallum...

Melanie's cancer journey began just as she celebrated her 50th birthday and she quickly became familiar with all the oncology and related services available at CMH.

Even though I've lived in this community for 18 years, I had no idea that Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH) offered such exceptional care. Until they saved my life.

It was November 2019. A few months earlier, I had just celebrated my 50th birthday and was looking forward to spending the holidays with my family. Then I found a pea-sized lump in my right breast and life changed. It was cancer.

Friends and colleagues were quick to recommended hospitals all over Ontario. But the first surgeon that I met after my diagnosis told me that if I was looking for the best possible care, there was no need to look further than right here at Cambridge Memorial Hospital. And she was absolutely right.

From diagnosis to surgery to follow-up treatments, even during unexpected complications, the team at CMH was phenomenal in every single way.

I was grateful for the swiftness and thoroughness of the nurses, doctors, and surgeons at CMH. Only two months after I discovered the lump, I was wheeled into the operating room for a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery.

Three weeks after surgery, I met with my general surgeon and I admit, I was afraid of what the news would be. But she took my hand and gave me the best news I'd ever received, "We got it all. You are cancer-free."

My cancer journey at CMH is not unique. People are newly diagnosed each and every day and like mine, their lives will change forever. It is because of the amazing care at CMH that I'm looking forward to living a long cancer-free life.

My family and I are making a gift to Trees of Caring this year in honour of the staff and doctors at CMH that took care of me.

Whether it's for cancer, heart disease, or any other illness my hope is that everyone receives the same compassion and lifesaving care that a supportive community made possible for me.

Please make a Trees of Caring donation today so our family and friends will continue to have the care they need, right here at CMH.

With gratitude,

Melanie McCallum, Grateful Patient
