“I was referred to Dr. Chesney at the Brown Cancer Center (BCC) by my doctors in Paducah after being diagnosed with a rare form of melanoma. Within 48 hours of the referral, I was meeting in Louisville with Dr. Chesney and members of his team. Since that time, I can personally attest to the professionalism, expertise and groundbreaking research of BCC.” – Chris Sutton, Eddyville, KY (Lyon County)
