Patients from all over the country and internationally travel to CTCA at Midwestern for world-class treatment. CTCA offers multiple defenses against cancer including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. In the new paradigm of breast cancer treatment, it is important to obtain all the relevant information about the cancer, including its genetic structure and possible gene mutations, before a multi-disciplinary treatment is started. The breast center at CTCA at Midwestern specializes in individualized treatment plans based on the premise that breast cancer is not one disease, but a complex group of diseases.

After her diagnosis, she looked for a book to guide her through the information and decisions that she faced. She started by researching her cancer on many fronts—prevention, politics, standard treatment, alternative treatment, and more. Often what she discovered led her into new areas of research.
