Fresno Bee

A 90-minute chemotherapy bath is giving Agustina Meza-Alfonso a new lease on life.

Last week Meza-Alfonso, 48, became the first patient to undergo hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy at Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno.

Community is the only hospital in the central San Joaquin Valley to offer HIPEC and is among only a handful of hospitals in the state to provide it, including University of California medical centers at Irvine and San Diego.
