Introducing REACH Magazine

ReachUnder45CoverFINALSmallWith the Summer 2015 issue of St. Rose’s quarterly magazine, we are launching the inaugural edition of Reach, formerly WomensCare magazine. After talking with local men and women in focus groups, we found that first, the name WomensCare made it appear the publication was not pertinent to men, which isn’t the case, and second, while people really like our articles, they would prefer that they are shorter and that we cover broader health and wellness topics.

The name “Reach” was chosen because we want our readers to think about all of the goals they aspire to reach – health, wellness, emotional, etc. – and we want to inspire them to reach those goals.

Readers will notice that the magazine doesn’t have as many pages as it did before – that is because we removed all 10 pages of advertisements.

We will continue to write stories featuring our patients and employees, and we will use our original photographs.

If you have any comments about the magazine – or story ideas for future issues – I’d love to hear them. You can contact me at kim.haley@dignityhealth.org.

They had her back

Caring support means the world to one of our own.

For more than a decade, Marcie Mynatt, RN, has dedicated herself to caring for patients and being there for her fellow employees at St. Rose Dominican. In July 2011, Marcie learned she had Stage IIIC ovarian cancer. Suddenly, she found herself the patient—and when she needed it most, she also found incredible support.

Listening to her body

Severe bloating and pelvic pain had troubled Marcie for months. “I knew something was not right,” she says. “It wasn’t until I had a CT scan at St. Rose Dominican’s Rose de Lima Campus that the cancer was found.”

Unfortunately, this is often the case with ovarian cancer. It can occur and grow silently. And early signs may be dismissed as not serious. But when it is cancer, it’s one of the most dangerous types. According to the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer accounts for only about 3 percent of cancers among women. But it causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.

After she was diagnosed, Marcie’s treatment began immediately. She had a complete hysterectomy. Lymph nodes in her pelvis and abdomen were removed along with a section of her colon.

“For those whose cancer has spread widely throughout the abdomen as Marcie’s had, it is important that as much of the
tumor is removed as possible,” says Anthony Nguyen, MD, oncologist. “The goal is to leave no tumors larger than 1 centimeter.”

Strengthened by humankindness

“Those who have or have had any type of cancer know that it takes strength and a will to fight,” says Marcie. “But it also takes support, and I honestly couldn’t have made it this far without my family and friends as well as the assistance I
received from St. Rose Dominican and its employees. I am so thankful for their amazing generosity.”

Marcie’s co-workers donated PTO (paid time off), prepared meals for her family, and covered for her when treatments left her exhausted. “I was able to focus on recovering without worrying about work,” she says.

If you have concerns about your gynecologic health and need a doctor, please call 702.616.4900 for a referral.
