Tracy Brittingham fought multiple myeloma surrounded by friends and family,
and the caregivers at Atlantic General’s Regional Cancer Care Center

Tracy Brittingham credits not only her family, friends and faith for getting
her through cancer diagnosis and treatment, but the caregivers at the
AGH Regional Cancer Care
Center, especially her physician, Dr. Rabindra Paul.
In May 2015, Tracy’s busy life as a correctional officer changed
dramatically when she received her multiple myeloma diagnosis. She had
been seeing Dr. Paul already for a blood clot and felt so comfortable
and well-cared for by him and his team that when the time came to choose
a cancer care provider, she felt no need to look elsewhere.
“I love Dr. Paul and his team. He was by my side from diagnosis throughout
my entire treatment. The Regional Cancer Care Center team makes you feel
at home. They are so supportive and treat you like family,” said Tracy.
The proximity of the Regional Cancer Care Center to Tracy’s home
was another deciding factor. She is a Berlin native, and the fact that
she was able to remain independent, even driving herself home after treatments
from time to time, made all the difference. She felt as if she was being
cared for by friends and neighbors who were invested in her health and
Even though the diagnosis and treatment led her to retire early from her
physically demanding job as a correctional officer, Tracy has a zest for
life and appreciates each day.
“When you’re going through cancer diagnosis and treatment it
can be very hard to deal with and process. Friends and family, like my
daughter, Star, my mother and Reverend Barbara Harmon, all provided the
support when I needed it. That, a positive, fighting attitude and my caregivers
at the AGH Regional Cancer Care Center got me through it,” said Tracy.
Tracy added that if a friend or relative were diagnosed with cancer, she
would not hesitate to recommend the Regional Cancer Care Center, adding
that you absolutely need a team of caregivers that will provide support
and treat you like family.
