My Doernbecher Story

Jane's Story

When i was born my mom knew something was wrong with me. I did not have a normal cry i sounded like a mouse. My mom took me to many doctors all around Oregon. She finally found a doctor in Pendelton Oregon that doctor told her she better get me to OHSU and fast. My mom almost lost me on the way there. I was given a very small survival rate. After many tests and days they found the answer. I was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called cancerous Papalomas on the vocal chords. I am a 22 year old survivor with a 3 year old little boy and just got married in September Thanks to OHSU.
