Breast Cancer Second Opinion Leads to a Positive Outcome

August 30, 2019

When Barbara Brown learned she had an aggressive form of breast cancer, her surgeon at a local healthcare facility was eager to move forward with surgery before consulting an oncologist or considering other treatment options.

Barbara knew she wanted a second opinion, so she called The University of Kansas Cancer Center. “The minute I walked through the doors of the cancer center, it felt right,” Barbara says.

"My doctor seemed as though she had all the time in the world to examine me, educate me and discuss recommended treatments.

“I told her it was not an option to not get well,” adds the mother of 3. “Without skipping a beat, she put her hand on my knee and reassured me that our goal was to get me well.”

Throughout her cancer treatment, Barbara was touched by the personal, compassionate care she received at the cancer center. She’s become a lifeline to others with cancer and a strong advocate for the cancer center.

As with all treatments, individual patient results vary. It is important to discuss your treatment options with your healthcare provider.
