Sonia was simply living her life, focused on taking care of her family. The last thing she expected was cancer. Then she felt a lump on her breast and went to get a mammogram. “I wasn’t concerned at all,” Sonia says.
But after a second mammogram and an ultrasound as well, Sonia heeded her doctor’s recommendation and went to MD Anderson. “I trust my doctor and had already heard a lot of other people’s high praise for MD Anderson.”
Her MD Anderson doctor then laid out all the options available to her and kept her updated on any changes to her condition. Confident with the knowledge and expertise of her MD Anderson team and with the full support of her own doctor, Sonia decided to get a double mastectomy and reconstruction.
Asked to describe the care afterward, Sonia sums it up this way: “When people care like they do here at MD Anderson, they give their best.” Today, Sonia is again able to enjoy the things most precious to her – focusing on her family and not sweating the small stuff anymore.
