Pancreatic cancer survivor and care team honored at Miller Park
Dr. Doug Evans, Pauline Morgan, Harriet Russell (patient), Patricia Mills
and Steve Klotzbuecher were recently honored at Miller Park.
On Saturday, August 15, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin patient Harriet Russell and her care team were honored in front of a sold out crowd at Miller Park.
Harriet stood before the crowd wearing purple colors, a symbol of the 30,000 others in the U.S. fighting to beat pancreatic cancer.
She first received the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in February of 2009. After months of cancer treatment, including a successful surgery, her care team helped her get her life back. Chairman of Surgery, Dr. Doug Evans and 3NT nurses Steve Klotzbuecher, RN, Pauline Morgan, RN and Patricia Mills, RN were honored, alongside Harriet at the game.
While the Public Address Announcer shared Harriet's story, her family watched nearby in the stands wearing purple bracelets, honoring the friend, mother, wife and grandmother. Just 6 months earlier, Harriet had learned of her devastating diagnosis. Last weekend, she stood proud as a survivor.
