It’s that positivity that brought Forte back to NYGH when his colon cancer relapsed. First diagnosed in 2014, Forte’s first round of colon cancer was treated through surgery and chemotherapy. After being given a clean bill of health, he and his wife travelled around the world for a year. When his cancer re-lapsed there was no doubt in his mind that he would return to NYGH for treatment.
As he nears the completion of chemotherapy, Forte’s outlook is bright. He is grateful for the expert care he has received at NYGH. “I am so blessed to have the best doctor and the best care here,” he says, smiling. “What more could I ask for?”
