“Breast cancer treatment is my passion and my calling. Woman-to-woman I bring you that special understanding about the effects of this disease. The part that goes beyond the physical aspects—the questions about your femininity, your appearance, your doubts, and your fears. I’ve been on the other side of the cancer table, having lost my father to lung cancer. There were times I didn’t feel like I was getting the whole story. I welcome your questions and concerns. We’ll walk through breast cancer together. You are not in this alone.”
