My Story

Bonnie | age 74
Retired Account Clerk
Angola, NY
14 years, 2 months since her MammoSite treatment.

Hi my name is Bonnie and I am a breast cancer survivor. On 4/26/05 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was very lucky the tumor was small and a lumpectomy followed by radiation was recommended. After the 6/23/05 surgery, I was scheduled to se Dr. Khalil for radiation treatment. My surgeon thought I would be a candidate for MammoSite vs. regular radiation. The MammoSite therapy had been around for a few years. When I heard the treatment was 5 days long compared with 6 and-a-half weeks, I favored MammoSite. I wish I knew the right questions to ask at the time, but I was too scared. All I knew was that in five days I could move on from this nightmare. If anyone would like to ask me any questions, please contact me.

This profile is solely the words of the person who received MammoSite Targeted Radiation Therapy to treat breast cancer. Note that this profile is specific to this particular person, and experiences will vary.
