Melissa Thompson

'Why do I have this scar on my neck?'
When her doctor felt a lump on her neck, Melissa Thompson went from Asante Rogue Regional nursing student to cancer patient — and now advocates for preventive care.

Dan Bittick

Dan is an avid cyclocross competitor and was at the top of his game before he had a bike accident that resulted in a broken femur. Dan’s story focuses on the cycle of caring – from his emergency surgery at Asante Ashland Community Hospital, to the support from his cycling friends, from his physical therapy at Asante Outpatient Rehabilitation, to his full recovery.


Brian Day

Brian, a self-employed electrician for more than 50 years and a recent newlywed, experienced a critical “neurological short circuit.” Asante Physician Partners neurologist, Eric Lee, MD, quickly diagnosed Brian with a life-threatening condition known as myasthenia gravis.


Thanks to Dr. Lee’s quick action, Brian has his spark back and is enjoying life with his new bride, Sue.

Shane Oakley

Shane and Jenna are a husband and wife team that enjoys team roping.

When they learned Shane had a leaking heart valve that needed immediate replacement, they were grateful for the experienced care team at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.

The Montague, California resident’s story is a reminder of the importance of team work – in family, in health care and in life.
