Patient Stories - Focus on you
Health for Emily
Stage 3 breast cancer. It dealt Josie’s mom, Emily, some bad hands, but as long as she could hold her daughter’s, it meant good things. Health for Emily meant a double mastectomy and reconstruction from a gifted surgical team. It meant two rounds of chemo with the latest drugs and a nurse navigator to keep her on track and one understanding princess to keep her positive. And most importantly, it’s meant many more tomorrows for Emily. For an appointment, call 412.DOCTORS (412.362.8677). Or to learn more, visit the AHN Cancer Institute.
