FOR JOHN, PARTNERSHIP IS HAVING AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY ALONG FOR THE RIDE. John Kasper owns an auto detail shop in Bennington and is a guy much loved by his friends, family and local community. He’s a guy who, after being diagnosed with inoperable Stage IV tonsil cancer, never lost his resolve to fight. He says, “If it wasn’t for my doctors, nurses and an entire community behind me, I would not be here today.” Cancer treatment teams from SVMC and Dartmouth-Hitchcock work together to help patients like John defy the odds. To learn more about John’s story and our partnership with Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center, visit svhealthcare.org/stories. PARTNERSHIP IS POWERFUL MEDICINE.
