Amy Finn, one of my very special patients
It is with great sadness that I report that Amy Finn, one of my very special patients, lost her courageous battle with brain cancer.
She was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, underwent brain surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments.
After all of this, she permanently lost a great deal of her hair. This bothered her tremendously-so much so that she only felt comfortable wearing a hat or bandana all the time in public. Her recovery was not complete without her hair.
She sought information about hair transplantation and my staff and I transplanted Amy’s balding areas in two sessions. She was very pleased with her new growing hair. In fact, she wanted to help other women with hair loss. That’s the type of person she was. She agreed to tell her story in Rhode Island Monthly magazine and to be highlighted in an NBC affiliate health segment news story, which followed her hair growth and continued recovery from her devastating illness over a year’s period of time.
She always kept a positive attitude though her cancer returned after a long remission. She fought hard and recently indicated that she had a wonderful life.
My condolences to her family and to her many friends.
May her memory be eternal!
