Helen and Ossie Gordon

Celebrating 50 years of marriage … and cancer survivorship

Helen and Ossie Gordon


Helen: Ossie and I have been married for 50 years. We do everything together, but we never imagined we would do cancer together. Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and Ossie was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and we turned to Summa Health.

While I was getting chemotherapy, Ossie was getting radiation in the Cooper Cancer Pavilion...

Ossie: the same time. I went through 44 of radiation treatment.

Helen: At the Breast Center, I participated in a multidisciplinary clinic, and the whole team was there. My surgeon, oncologist, nutritionist and financial planning.

Ossie: We were celebrating 50 years of marriage this year, and we can now celebrate knowing that cancer is behind us thanks to Summa.
