In mid-June, 2005 cancer patient Kathy Jardon made one of her familiar trips to Lawrence Memorial Hospital's Oncology department for chemotherapy. On her arrival she and the staff greeted one another by name and she went through the drill of getting her wrist band, the weigh-in and headed for a treatment with no prompting. She talked with Dr. Matthew Stein, her oncologist, before he examined her. . "He's a unique individual ... it's as if you're the only person in the universe when he's talking to you," Kathy said.
