Carole seemed to be the picture of health; she and her husband, John, worked out regularly and led a full, active lifestyle. But everything changed when she learned she had breast cancer. Very soon after that diagnosis, Dr. Omraju, her primary care doctor, suspected a serious heart issue, as well. Carole found herself in the frightening position of facing two complex medical problems at once. "Without the teamwork among Dr. Ciccone (my cardiologist), Dr. Spratt (my heart surgeon), and Dr. Baker (my breast surgeon), it's likely that I might not be here to tell my story," says Carole. "They worked as partners to plan and coordinate my care. They also saw and treated me as a whole person. It felt like I was being treated by the Roper St. Francis family and not merely by multiple physicians."
