Learn from our patients

“I am blessed to be alive today and with my family. I tell friends who are my age—get checked out.”
“Being in a room with other women going through the same thing made me feel better.”
“It was a painless process and as far as I’m concerned it saved my life.”
“Three days later I felt fine, almost normal. I couldn’t believe I had this big surgery.”
“I want to tell people my story because the only reason I was able to beat this cancer was because I had that screening. There are a lot of people out there who are not getting these screenings and they should be.”
“When the doctor said it was cancer, I was shocked. I had no weight loss. No energy loss. I just thought if it was cancer, I’d have noticed some other symptoms.”
