Podkowa says her surgery was done in Boston but the treatment she received at Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care was “tremendous.”

Podkowa was one of the keynote speakers Sunday at Buttonwood Park, where 400 cancer survivors, patients, family members, doctors and staffers gathered to celebrate “A Day of Life.”
