Survivor thanks to hockey | UCHealth

(gentle music) – [Crysta] First on the ice, last off the ice. (group laughs) That was exciting. We were there giving her high fives. – [Announcer] Meyers scores. – It was fan appreciation night, and they had the mammogram bus out front. Mom, Joudy and I went, so that is the night
that led to my diagnosis. Week and a half later, got a phone call saying that they wanted to take a closer look at an area that they had concerns about. It was non-invasive, it wasn’t spreading. Doctor Dicknson was the doctor that was doing the lumpectomy. – DCIS is almost never able
to be felt on a self exam, or a doctor’s breast exam. Mammograms allow us to find DCIS. – With catching the DCIS early, I didtn’t have to do chemo. I don’t feel like my recovery was terrible and I think it’s because
it was caught so early. It makes you appreciate
family and friends a lot more. You realize who’s there
for you, who has your back. It gives you a whole new outlook on life. (gentle music) (gentle music fades)

    Hey UC Health, watch this video of one of your employees, who works at UC Health Emergency room in Longmont Colorado running stop lights (Yes, plural). Plus, I have a great video of this same PATHETIC LOSER speeding ~15 over the speed limit (At least 50mph…I was trying to keep up with her but she was going faster than I was willing to travel), swerving in and out of lanes, no turn signals, all while the roads are icy and snow covered. I have been in EMS on the civilian and military side and this behavior is ABSOLUTELY ABHORRENT. She should be FIRED for this. Just watch the video and you'll see. If you want the other one up, I have it ready. https://youtu.be/VYlHX1VVV-w
