When Dana Rizzo’s biopsy confirmed she had breast cancer, she immediately thought she would need to travel to Pittsburgh. Her doctor at Excela informed her that because of a partnership between UPMC and Excela Health, she didn’t have to travel, and reassured her that the cancer was treatable. “His first words to me when he walked into the room were ‘This is not a death sentence.’ Those words, and even the image of him walking in the room telling me that, stick with me to this day and set the tone for my battle against cancer. Dana was referred to medical oncologist John Waas, MD, and radiation oncologist Igor Poltinnikov, MD, and received chemotherapy and radiation at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center at Arnold Palmer Pavilion, in partnership with Excela Health.

After the overwhelming feeling of her diagnosis, Dana’s plan of attack was to treat her breast cancer like a job. With the help of her UPMC and Excela care team, she created a list to-do’s. “As I checked things off the list – MRI, surgery, chemo, radiation, etc. – felt stronger and stronger,” she said. “Knowing that I was not going to be stopped and my entire team – the doctors, nurses, my husband, me – would win this fight.”
