A Patient’s Cancer Journey: When saying thank you is sometimes not enough

Posted on Sept. 7, 2016, 6 a.m.

We are honored to share the following patient story posted by Curémonos, a grassroots community-based organization created to help, guide, and educate medically underserved women who are dealing with breast health concerns or a breast cancer diagnosis. They recently posted the story of Janeth Rivera, a four-year breast cancer survivor. 

Janeth describes her search for breast reconstruction options after mastectomy. She describes her experience with Peter Hyans, MD, FACS: "During my appointment, Dr. Hyans treated me like a movie star and I was so overwhelmed with joy that I was not able to utter words in either English or Spanish."
