“Being somewhat new to the area, I didn't really have people to lean on. The camaraderie at White Plains Hospital really gave me a level of comfort that I needed.”
Ryan Droege was only 41 years old, into fitness and completely blindsided when a colonoscopy revealed he had advanced colorectal cancer. At the White Plains Hospital Center for Cancer Care, Dr. Joshua Raff and a team of experts rallied around him with an aggressive plan to beat the cancer—including surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and genetic counseling. Now, Ryan’s back to his active lifestyle and doing the things he loves most.
