Laurie Brown's Story
I was diagnosed with stage 2 ductal carcinoma breast cancer shortly after my 40th birthday, about ten years ago. My primary care doctor basically said, “Run, do not walk, to GBMC!” Having seen GBMC ranked consistently as one of the nation’s leading hospitals, I knew it was the right choice for me. I had no family history of the breast cancer, so when I was diagnosed, I was stunned.
Dr. Robert Donegan and his team immediately put my husband and me at ease. I was thoroughly impressed with how quickly GBMC got me through my mastectomy and into further treatment. I know that the Berman Cancer Institute always does its homework and is constantly researching the best treatments for each patient’s individual needs, so I knew I was in good hands.
Did I mention the nurses are beyond amazing? My biggest concern after my diagnosis was that I would lose my sense of humor. GBMC made sure that never happened. Thank you!
