We have come so far and we are so close to the dream of a breast cancer free world. We discovered the estrogen receptor and created tamoxifen to shut it down. We discovered the Her2 receptor (the most deadly of breast cancers) and created Herceptin to shut it down. We can now kill most breast cancers and stop many of them in their tracks. The vast majority of breast cancers can now be fended off for a long time, giving women the opportunities to experience life with their families. Mothers now have the chance to watch their daughters grow up and become mothers themselves.

I am now an independent practitioner, someone who can give my patients the personal care they deserve and all the time and attention they need.Read More
Jackie is a good mom. She takes care of her kids. She gets them to do their homework. She drives them to dance class, soccer games and piano lessons. She washes their clothes, packs their lunches and cooks their dinner. And she does the same for her husband. Jackie has little time for herself, especially when you take into account the volunteer time at her kids’ schools.Read More Breast, Breast cancer, Mammography, Pink ribbon
Susan was aghast. She had breast cancer. But she did everything right. She ate her fruits and vegetables. She went jogging every day. She even read her Bible devotional before going to bed every night. Her faith in a just God, who is fair and good was as strong as ever, but, still life just wasn’t fair. She cried as her husband held her lovingly, letting her know he would be with her every step of the way.Read More Breast cancer, Cancer, Sentinel lymph node, Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy, Technetium-99m, Tumor
