28 Jun What You Need To Know About Breast Cancer: Prevention Part 1
I’ve said in the past that I do not consider cancer to be a gift. I do however, consider life after it to be one. After my diagnosis, my experience has been paved with many treasures and quite a few angels in my path. One of those is Dr. Sheldon Feldman, Chief of Breast Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center, who upon meeting him on September 19, 2008, changed the course of my life. We met almost 4 years ago on the day I was to receive my breast cancer diagnosis, but strangely, he was able to calm my fears (as much as possible at least) and ultimately went on to remove the tumor (also known as “the scary monster”) from my breast. Upon coming out of operating room, he proclaimed I had “the best possible outcome”, a quote that remains posted on my vision board to this day! Since 2010, he has trusted me enough to lead the first-ever wellness series at Columbia University’s Department of Breast Surgery.
Almost four years since our initial and unforgettable meeting and two years since working together, he never seems to amaze me with his genuine compassion for the patients he serves. It’s no wonder he is the featured guest and is an advocate for prevention and wellness. Having said that, I hope you listen to this recording “What You Need To Know About Breast Cancer: Prevention“. The next segment titled, “What You Need to Know About Breast Cancer: Early Diagnosis” takes place on July 11th at 12:00 PM ET. As you know, our goal at SPEACH is to help you take your health into your own hands and this is a great place to start.
