After many years of service to our Cape Fear Cancer Specialists and Zimmer Cancer Center family, Fayerence Richburg will retire.
Faye’s retirement tea will be held 2-4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 in the Zimmer Cancer Center Conference Room.
Faye began her career with HMS-GI in 1990, and left to care for her adopted son. In 2008 she returned to HMS-Oncology, which became Cape Fear Cancer Specialists. For the past 12 years, Faye has worked in multiple areas of CFCS, from Patient/Insurance Rep, to Registration, to Scheduling. Since CFCS merged with Zimmer, Faye has worked at the 17th Street campus working with Dr. Kotz's team.
Faye’s retirement plan includes devoting time to her church’s clothing and food pantry, and cleaning out her closets. She is looking forward to simply taking it easy for a few months.
Faye says she looks back on her time here as a great adventure, and feels like she was meant to be here. She will miss her patients most of all, and feels thankful she has been able to be on this journey with them.
