When Grover Crumbley’s wife was receiving treatment at the Tate Cancer Center, Grover became friends with the nurses and physicians providing her care. Those friends would then go on to care for him when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. 

Grover first needed laparoscopic surgery and, later, chemotherapy to contain the cancer. When nodules appeared in his lungs, the team began treatment with radiation to get rid of them. The multidisciplinary care provided by the Tate Cancer Center helped to extend Grover’s life.
