The transformation in their faces from when they start treatment to when they finish treatment. Giving them their life back!” While out of the office, Barbara is active in her church by singing in the choir. She enjoys reading, painting, camping, and traveling to new places and is most often seen with her Rescue Dog, Lucy.
