Patient Testimonials

Cecil Rountree

Cecil Rountree, colon cancer, cancer trial participant
Cecil was happy to have the opportunity to help others: “I wanted to do my part and perhaps provide encouragement to those following me.”

After serving 23 years in the Air Force, Cecil Rountree was living comfortably in his small South Dakota town. And as someone who never even had a bad cold, Cecil felt somewhat invincible healthwise. All that changed in May of 2000 when, during the course of one day, Cecil went from seeing his doctor about stomach problems to talking to a surgeon about colon cancer.
