Meet Jim

Jim went into his local hospital in Alameda, California for what he thought to be a routine hernia repair, but shortly after the surgery he received an unexpected call.

“They had found a rare cancer, Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP), and I needed to get a CT scan right away,” said Jim.

“UPMC was just the whole package,” said Jim, “My wife and I called it the wrap around welcome.”

Jim returned home nearly ten years ago, and now lives an active, fulfilling life with his wife and two young children.
