Thanks to Dr. Thomas, there's no more Regis & Kathie Lee.
Being diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease was terrible, but I was lucky to find Dr. Anthony Thomas. He is so positive and has such a great sense of humor, which is what I needed. We'd make each other laugh and play tricks on each other. One time I had an appointment and instead of wearing my regular wig – I'd lost much of my hair because of the chemo – I got one of the nurses to help me put on a bright blue clown's wig just so I could see the expression on Dr. Thomas's face.
He really helped me through a tough time. He knew how important exercise was to me, so he encouraged me to keep working out even when I was having radiation and chemotherapy treatment. The chemotherapy sessions were the hard part. It drove me crazy to sit still for four-hour stretches, but what was really painful was having to watch Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee. That was four years ago, and today I'm feeling fantastic. I still see Dr. Thomas for everything – I trust him with my life.
