When I began treatment with Astera Cancer Care, I was afraid of letting go of control and having someone else determine and plan treatment for me and be responsible for my life.

I was hopeful that Astera Cancer Care would see me as an individual and understand my fears and issues. They did. When I met with my doctor, we clicked, and I felt great trust. They treated me with the utmost respect and caring, like I was going home to family. They’re wonderful, competent, caring and giving, and you can always feel positivity there. They saved my life.
