In 2003, Vietnam veteran Boyd Adams noticed that his right thigh was larger than his left and consulted a physician. It was discovered that he had liposarcoma, a type of cancerous tumor which the Veterans Administration has linked to exposure to Agent Orange. Boyd underwent surgery to remove the tumor, but several years later it grew back.
That's when he was referred to Dr. Ronald Hugate, a bone tumor specialist at Colorado Limb Consultants in Denver, Colorado. In this video Boyd talks about his experience and the wonderful care he received from Dr. Hugate and the staff at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center.
