Fort Smith Radiation Oncology’s July Patient Spotlight is Linda Goins of Panama, Oklahoma.

Ms. Goins has lived her whole life in the Panama area.  Ms. Goins comes from a large family; she has six sisters and five brothers. This results in her being an aunt to over 60 nieces and nephews! She graduated from Panama High School, and is a graduate of Carl Albert State College, and Northeastern University in Tahlequah.  Ms. Goins was a teacher/coach for 18 years.  She coached basketball and softball at Panama, Howe, McCurtain, and Cave Springs over the 18 year span.  She now works at Anchor Finance Loan Service in Sallisaw, Oklahoma.

Ms. Goins’ cancer was found on her annual mammogram.  Dr. Seffense performed her surgeon and Dr. Mackey is currently administrating her chemotherapy treatments.  Ms. Goins was referred to Dr. Kris Gast for her radiation treatments.

Ms. Goins stated that she is just ready to get back to her normal life.  The chemotherapy and radiation treatments combined have made her tired, so she sleeps more than she ever has in her life.  She has a 20 acre yard that she loves to take care of and she thanks her brothers for helping her with the yard work during her treatments.

Ms. Goins has been a joy to get to know every day.  She is always smiling and brightens the room with her presence!
