Bladder cancer patient thought symptoms were due to infection (VIDEO)
Christine Crews thought she had a bladder infection she just couldn’t shake. Turns out, the Memphis, Tenn., resident had been living with bladder cancer for 15 years.
A surgeon recommended invasive surgery, but Crews wasn't comfortable with that recommendation; she wanted other options. When a urologist friend recommended she call City of Hope, she did.
"They actually listened to what I wanted from the surgery," Crews said. "They were able to give me options that other hospitals were not able to give me."
In the video above, Crews shares her story to help other people with bladder cancer understand just how special City of Hope is, and what their options really are.
