Trisha's Story

Trisha Croft was a busy 31 year old mom, wife and special education teacher when she was diagnosed with Stage IIIB Lung Cancer.    

Given six months to live if treatment didn’t work, the medical team at Billings Clinic supported Trisha and helped her navigate both the physical and emotional challenges of her battle with cancer. 

Understanding that her diagnosis required much more than just specialized medical care, Billings Clinic provided Trisha with an oncology social worker, financial counselor, dietitian, nurse navigator and research nurse.  When the cancer spread to her brain the specialists at Billings Clinic were able to treat her with Gamma Knife Radiation. 

Trisha also underwent several different types of chemotherapy treatment. It was through Trisha’s resilience combined with our care, support and the newest clinical trials, that she has been able to continue her life as a mother of her now ten-year-old daughter, seventeen-year-old daughter and twenty-year-old son. She said her work is not done and she continues her fight to live life to the fullest.
