Patient Stories

Alison Kovalchik

Breast Cancer

Alison Kovalchik

Breast Cancer

In 2013, Alison Kovalchik learned she carried the BRCA1 mutation that increases the risk for developing breast cancer. Because she already had a number of other health issues, she was very worried about her options for preventive treatment. Upon the recommendation of her doctor, Alison sought answers from a specialist at Fox Chase Cancer Center, where she later had preventive surgery. She was assigned to a team of physicians from several different departments who all worked together to form an individualized treatment plan to ensure the best outcome. "Even though Fox Chase is a cancer center, its staff considers the patient as a whole person, which is something I hadn’t encountered elsewhere, and, to me, it is a true miracle," Alison said. "Fox Chase Cancer Center’s doctors worked as a team to treat me...I trust my team at Fox Chase. My doctors gave me my life back—in all ways, not only with the BRCA mutation risk. I know I’m in the best hands for my care."

GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor)

"On October 29, 2012, I thought I had a bad case of the flu. I had slight pains on the right side and was really tired. I decided to go to the local hospital for a checkup and that’s when everything in my world started to change. I ended up with emergency surgery that day for an appendectomy. Afterwards my surgeon, Dr. Carlos Villarreal, and my best friend, Dr. Richard Bindie, told me that if I had waited a couple more hours I would have been dead. Dr.

    I came for a 2nd opinion (cancer diagnosis). Though the Dr explained a lot about the procedure, I was making life and death decisions in less time than I would have bought a new car. Dr needs to slow down! Much important info - e.g., about how many chemo/radiation treatments - was delivered way too fast ... and I'm a great note-taker. Doctors go thru this delivery of info as if it's a routine; and for them, it is. But it is anything BUT routine for the patient. My provider's discussion convinced me she would be an excellent surgeon. But I am an inquisitive patient so I need more details than others. I have way too much up-close experience with cancer: parents, husband, dear friends, etc., so I may dive deeper than most. But I have only 1 chance to get this decision right - and I would have valued a slower explanation and somewhat longer meeting. That notwithstanding, I was very impressed by Dr King. I chose, however, a facility closer to home. Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback.
