My Story

Donna | age 59
Interior Decorator
Birmingham, AL
14 years, 10 months since her MammoSite treatment.

I have been married to my husband for twenty-five years and we have three wonderful daughters. I was diagnosed with breast cancer during my oldest daughter's senior year in high school. Initially, the news was devastating to my family, my friends, and me. I honestly thought I was invincible. Like most people, I am extremely busy and didn't have time for such a prognosis. However, the good Lord had a different plan for my life. My breast cancer was found during a regularly scheduled mammogram visit. I was immediately referred to a surgeon and a breast biopsy was performed. The biopsy results indicated cancer. Surgery was scheduled and shortly thereafter is when I made the decision to do the MammoSite 5-Day Targeted Radiation Therapy. I chose the MammoSite for several reasons; the short-term treatment was attractive to me because of my hectic schedule and also, my husband sells cutting edge medical technology to the operating room. Besides, as already mentioned, it was my daughter's senior year in high school and she was leaving our home in Alabama to attend college at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. I wanted to get back to normal as quickly as possible so I could spend quality time with her. The MammoSite experience was better than I had imagined. I would definitely recommend to everyone who qualifies. It has been three years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my life continues to be blessed. I am thankful to the good Lord above for sparing my life. On a personal note, my oldest daughter is now in her junior year at Pepperdine, my middle daughter is a freshman at Auburn University and my youngest daughter is currently a sophomore in high school. I have the best husband in the entire world who is perfect for me and loves me unconditionally. Thank you for allowing me to share my story. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
