Cancer Journey Changes Woman's Outlook on Life

Tameri Miller’s cancer journey had an unlikely beginning.

When Miller began having abdominal pain, she made an appointment with her family medicine physician, who discovered an ovarian cyst. This finding prompted her to put Miller in contact with a Utica Park Clinic OB/Gyn for more specialized testing.

During an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis, a Hillcrest South ultrasound technologist caught a glimpse of her lung and noticed something peculiar on it. He brought the finding to the attention of the radiologist who informed Miller’s OB/Gyn.
