Dawn Poole: Baylor Scott & White caught my colon cancer just in time.

Because her first colonoscopy showed precancerous polyps, Dawn Poole made sure to keep her appointment for a follow-up test three years later. That colonoscopy showed stage 1 colon cancer. "My doctor said he'd never seen a cancer grow that fast," she says. At Baylor Frisco, Dawn chose to undergo surgery with the da Vinci robotic surgical system. This minimally invasive procedure offers patients less pain and a faster recovery. "The care at Baylor was wonderful. Everyone was very caring and very informative." Dawn knows that early detection saved her life. "I'll get to see my daughter get married and my son go to college."
