Michelle's Story

“You cannot let the cancer define you.”

Michelle was a 34 year old, mother of three when she found a lump on her breast. Scared, she called her doctor, and was scheduled for an ultrasound, and then a mammogram. She was diagnosed with a form of breast cancer called invasive ductal carcinoma. In less than 48 hours Michelle met with her care team at the Saint Vincent Cancer and Wellness Center including a Radiation Oncologist, Medical Oncologist, and Breast Surgeon. “Walking out of there I felt like a weight was taken off, because I knew someone was going to be there for me.” Listen to Michelle’s story here and ​click here to learn more about all of the cancer services we offer at Saint Vincent Hospital.
