My Story

Judy | age 78
Retired Meatwrapper
Prosser, WA
15 years, 4 months since her MammoSite treatment.

I had a lumpectomy in February 2004 and was sent to the Cancer Center in Kennewick, WA. They told me that I might be a candidate for this new kind of radiation treatment, but they didn't even have the current information. I was referred to Dr. Ellis at Swedish Cancer Center in Seattle. I wanted to leave for Alaska in May, so I wanted to get the radiation over with. I am so glad I had the MammoSite radiation! I had no side effects and was able to enjoy my summer. I will find out in March 2008 if I am a 5-year survivor. I do tell everyone about my treatment and recommend it to anyone that has to have radiation.

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.
