Patient stories

At the VCU Medical Center, helping patients get on with and return to healthy, fulfilling lives is our ultimate goal. Behind all our groundbreaking research, latest technology and innovative treatments are the real people whose lives are changed every day. There are thousands of them, and they have thousands of stories to tell — many filled with hardships, perseverance, seeming miracles, hope, tears and joy.

We’d like to share just a few of the stories from patients who turned to the VCU Medical Center for help in 2012.
