Our Patients are Remarkable

Holy Cross Health's BeRemarkable journey continues; this time featuring real patients who have received life-changing, life-saving care. These brave patients, willing to share their stories, have done so in hopes that they can spread the word about the care they received and the renewed life they are living now.

Ken is pickleball champion who received a partial knee replacement and is back on the court; Cindy has her life back after years of struggling with severe pelvic floor complications; Doug is healthy and active after triple bypass surgery; Kenyardia "Kenny" is a 40-year old stroke survivor; and Polyana is a mother of three young girls and a breast cancer survivor.

May these stories offer inspiration to you to seek the care you need.

Be strong-hearted
