Susan: A true blessing

“I really feel like they saved my life,” Susan Pruitt says of the care she received from the team at Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University.

After experiencing bladder infections all her life and finally seeking treatment, her doctor referred her to Augusta University and was soon diagnosed with bladder cancer.

The treatment has decreased her tumor by 35 percent.
