ABC News

A valley woman is now recovering from a new cancer treatment which had never been performed here before.

Last week 48 year old Augustina Meza-Alfonso of Visalia underwent Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy(HIPEC) at Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno.

Augustina told us, “Now I cry because I feel happy.”

She described it as a priceless feeling. “The biggest difference was before my stomach was big and felt full. Now just pain.”

Doctors removed a 12 inch tumor which had grown from her appendix.
