On May 24, 2018, at the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center, I had a routine
mammogram and ultrasound. The scans revealed a lump in my breast and,
after two biopsies, it was discovered that I had two lumps, both of which
were breast cancer. Based on the diagnosis, I had a lumpectomy and radiation therapy.
I want to acknowledge the excellent care from my surgeon, Nancy Taft, MD,
and all the staff that were involved in my treatments and procedures.
I was treated with kindness and compassion. Gail Cooper-Parks, RN, and
Donna Skillings, RN, my nurse navigator, were supportive and especially helpful.
Having the coordination between Jupiter Medical Center, the Margaret W.
Niedland Breast Center and the Foshay Cancer Center made everything flow
Message to other women

and ultrasound tests to discover any abnormalities early and have the
