Patient Stories

Award-winning Bucks County photographer H. Scott Heist has created a series of intimate portraits of local cancer survivors who received care at The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital.

About "Portraits of Hope"

Cancer touches us all. Whether you have experienced cancer through a family member, friend or even personally, the disease has an undeniable presence that causes us to look at our own lives and our relationships with our loved ones. With advancements in the prevention and treatment of cancer, more people are living with cancer than ever before. And they're not just living -- they are thriving. 

"Portraits of Hope" features the stories and portraits of ten cancer survivors who were successfully treated at The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital. They graciously shared their experience and what they've learned about themselves through their ordeals. They handled cancer with courage and determination to get back not just to life as normal, but a life enhanced with new wisdom and appreciation. We thank each and every one of them for sharing their hope.
