N Good Health is designed to help you improve or maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. Over the past several years, employees from all over the organization have used the program to help make their health a priority. These individuals come from various backgrounds and stages in their wellness journeys, but the N Good Health team is always in awe of the dedication they show. Recently, we received an email with an awesome story and we are so excited to share with you today.
This email is from Linda Weber in Security, Safety and Emergency Preparedness. In this email, Linda goes into detail about how her N Good Health Physical and preventative screenings alerted her to significant health issues and possibly saved her life as a result. From Linda:
Prior to working for Norton Healthcare I was never good about going to the doctor unless I was really sick. This February will be my ten year anniversary with Norton Healthcare. I’ve been getting my annual wellness exams every year since I’ve been employed with Norton. In August of 2020 it was determined during my wellness exam that I had Type 2 Diabetes. I took advantage of Norton’s RX for Better Health program and received free supplies and my medication for next to nothing. Without this program, the cost of the supplies and medication wouldn’t have been affordable, even with our insurance.
In August of 2021 I had my annual mammogram and they saw something that warranted a second visit. We did a follow up mammogram in September along with an ultrasound. They saw something suspicious and scheduled me for a biopsy. I was lucky enough to get an appointment the next day for the biopsy and then anxiously waited three days for the results. Three days later I got the news that no one wants to get, I had Cancer! The good news was they caught it early. The following month I had the tumor removed and was cancer free! My boob tried to kill me, but because NHC promotes healthy living and incentivizes their employees to get their annual check-ups, my breast cancer was caught and removed in a 2 month time span.
I didn’t have any symptoms to let me know something was wrong with me. Without my annual checkups I never would have known that I had diabetes or breast cancer. I’m grateful that I work for an organization that prioritizes their employee’s health because it literally saved my life.
