This video is a long time coming - from when I first stepped foot in the Evelyn Lauder Breast Center, I knew I was where I belonged. My surgeon treated me like a daughter; my oncologist treats me like a sister; I tried to make one of my chemo nurses my sister in law.
Where you are treated can make a huge difference in just everything about your health and your future. I tell my doctors all the time that I do not worry because I expect them to worry for me. And they do. At Sloan, I was treated like LISA - I was me, everyone loved me and they did not need to love me.
I also was treated quickly - from my first appointment to my surgery it was 11 days. And only that long because my damn right breast was dense and hiding the cancer and I asked for a pet scan.
May you never walk in my shoes but if you do become the 1 in 8 diagnosed with Breast Cancer in your lifetime, pick your SLOAN.
