Biography

Sandy is a 54 year-old grammar school teacher. She met her second husband during her breast cancer journey. Her diagnosis is different from all of our other patients in that her breast cancer was discovered after breast reduction surgery. From there, she went onto have a lumpectomy where it was discovered that the breast cancer had spread significantly to her lymph nodes. Chemotherapy and radiation followed. Suffering many side effects, Sandy talks about the fatigue, hair loss, and most importantly, chemo brain fog, which continues to be a factor a couple years after her treatment. She talks openly about her resistance to support and recommends all breast cancer patients “just say yes!”
