#TackleCancer to make a difference

OCONOMOWOC – You could say Angela Sampson is good at getting things organized.

She’s a medical dosimetrist at Aurora Medical Center in Summit, so she does the treatment planning for all patients receiving radiation therapy.

She says she’s often referred to as the wizard behind the curtain.

“I tell the radiation where to go and what to avoid. We are a small group of people with a very specialized skill set and we truly love what we do.”

That ability to come up with a plan came in handy last year when she helped recruit more than 75 people to join her team for the first-ever Lombardi Walk to Tackle Cancer in Oconomowoc. She organized the entire Radiation Oncology department, along with their patients and loved ones.

For Angela, it’s important to show those patients that the staff really does care.

“I walk for our patients. I, along with my co-workers, take great pride in creating the best patient experience possible, especially given the tough situation our patients are in,” she shared. “Not a day goes by that our team isn’t making a difference in someone’s life.”
