Barb Schafer, employed 38 years at Fisher-Titus, is a Surgery Charge Nurse. This is her breast cancer story, from her own perspective, in her own words.
Given the choice, I would never want cancer. But it changed my life in a positive way – because I chose to make it positive.
By the grace of God, I discovered my cancer in September 2015 and followed up the next day with my surgeon, Dr. Jayne Minier. I feel that she saved my life because she believed me even though I had a normal mammogram a month earlier, a recent normal breast exam, and my cancer was difficult to feel.
