Cassandra's Breast Cancer Experience

Due to a family history of cancer, GenesisCare patient Cassandra was always conscientious when it came to getting her annual breast screenings. That's how her cancer was discovered. Cassandra recently shared her story about why she traveled from Alabama to South Florida to receive treatment for breast cancer. Her breast surgeon Dr. Kathleen Minnick  and her radiation oncologist Dr. Alicia Gittleman worked together to utilize intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) as part of Cassandra's treatment plan. 

"When Dr. Gittleman described the options, she told me about this procedure, the intraoperative radiation, and it was a one-time thing of radiation. It was going to be helpful because it was going to go right on that tumor and that is why I chose it," says Cassandra.
