Chase Chait


Chase Chait


I started out 2021 as an active, healthy 26-year-old transgender man. I was an avid hiker. I was engaged, and I was on my way to a promotion at my job. But by early 2022, I was also a cancer survivor living with HIV.

I feel supported by Fox Chase; they are family.

Tierra Ryan


At 31, Tierra Ryan was a young professional woman, working as a pharmacist and a medical writer for a large pharmaceutical company, when she was shocked to learn she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Fox Chase Cancer Center was one of two hospitals her doctor recommended. Tierra underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy at Fox Chase, and in November 2014 was placed on surveillance because her cancer was in remission. Today, she still works in the pharmaceutical industry, but as a medical science liaison focusing on oncology. "I’m truly thankful to the doctors and staff at Fox Chase because they saved my life," Tierra said. "Because of them, I have a long life ahead of me."

    This was a wonderful 1st visit for me with Dr. Khan. She is a top notch educated doctor in her field. She explained my condition to me, and answered all of my questions with the utmost care and concern, and spent time with me. She educated me about my cancer, and made me feel comforted and that I am & will be well cared for by her. I left feeling that I had made the best choice possible by picking Dr Khan as my oncologist, and Fox Chase Cancer Center as my cancer hospital. I am a totally satisfied patient.
