“I had complete trust in the Mississippi Cancer Institute!” — Dr. Dawn Sumrall

Sitting with her husband Hiram one evening, Dawn Sumrall’s thoughts were about a patient she’d examined earlier that day. She’d found a breast lump and her patient’s health was weighing heavily on her mind. She realized she couldn’t remember the last time she had performed her own self-breast exam. Then and there, she found a small lump in her breast. Anxiety set in. The next step was to call Southwest Health’s Mississippi Cancer Institute. After a sonogram, mammogram, and biopsy, Dawn learned that she had an aggressive cancer. “I immediately saw Hematologist Oncologist Dr. Ronald Delrie. I had complete trust in him and the nurses and techs at the Mississippi Cancer Institute.” Dawn shared. Before she knew it, she found herself starting the treatment process, first with chemotherapy, then as a patient in the same operating room where she’d worked for over 30 years, and finally with daily radiation. Altogether, Dawn’s treatment journey would take over a year to complete. She’s now back at her clinic part-time and taking the rest of her time to make up for lost time with her family. Dr. Sumrall states, “The support from my husband kept me going, and now I’m back to doing the things I enjoy most.” When asked what advice she would give patients going through breast cancer, she replied, “Take it one step at a time; trust your medical team; have a positive attitude; lean on your friends and family; and PRAY!”

Awards & Recognitions

Southwest Health is proud to serve patients in Southwest Mississippi and Northern Louisiana with excellence, compassion, and dedication. Without our healthcare system, our patients would be forced to drive between 60 to 100 miles to receive an adequate level of care. We believe that small communities should still have access to the best healthcare, and our actions prove our dedication.

While many other health systems of our size have eventually been bought out or forced to file bankruptcy, Southwest Health has remained at the forefront of cutting-edge medical care due to our teams' forward-thinking plans that ensure the development of a vital, growing, and-ultimately-long-lasting healthcare system for residents of our community.
