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."

Her gastroenterologist performed a PET scan which revealed a rare kind of cancer, a mucosal melanoma. “At that point, my urologist admitted 'this is beyond me. You need to go somewhere else',” she recalled.

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.

Marion Utain recalls hearing the worst news she could imagine: she had breast cancer. And then, as she tells the story, the miracles started. A month after her annual gynecological exam in November 2011 at 46, Marion felt a lump in her left breast. She made an appointment to see her doctor the next day.

    In November 2017, Dr. King was highly recommended when it was determined that I had cancer. From the surgery, cancer treatment & the follow-up test and examinations the whole processed has been excellent. I am forever thankful to Dr. Stephanie King.

    Doctor going over my records & the info I had JUST provided to nurse before talking to me would've been better - This is all too common. Also, although she answered all my questions, I felt that there should have been info provided that I didn't know to ask for. I was about to have major surgery - I'd have at least expected a brochure about what would happen.

    Dr. King is a wonderful doctor, who makes her patients top priority. She is kind, compassionate, and so knowledgeable. I will be forever grateful for the treatment and care she provided through my diagnosis and treatment for PPC. Lord willing, next July, I will celebrate 10 years since my diagnosis.

    I was referred to Dr. King by my gyn (who has been friends with her for over 20 years). I had supreme confidence going into surgery that all would go well & it did. Dr. King made me feel as comfortable as possible & continued that with the subsequent visits.

    I would heartily recommend Dr. King to any of my family or friends who experience the same issues (if they didn't have or trust their doctor(s) recommendations). I found out after my appt. was set that Dr. King is the specialist my best friend sees on a regular basis, so she felt relieved that I was seeing someone she trusts much for her medical care/needs.
