“It was ten years ago. I found the lump myself, before getting a mammogram. The doctors said it would probably have been missed by an ultrasound test. The surgeon scheduled a biopsy quickly and the result was positive. I have a longtime friend (since elementary school) who is a doctor – who was a huge support to me, as well as great friends like Carrie Kaufman (who works in the creative area at Brighton).
One of the most important things in my recovery was the support of my Family and Friends. Another all-important factor is finding the doctors you need. I believe in giving back, and as a chairperson of the American Cancer Society, I have helped them make strides toward prevention, research and a cure for breast cancer by participating in many of their events.”
