According to the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention, aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. It is also one of the leading causes of cancer death among women of all races and Hispanic origin populations. In 2007 (the most recent year numbers are available), 202,964 women in the United States were diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,598 women in the United States died from breast cancer.

Join me and two time breast cancer survivor Elaine Doroff as we discuss how to best Navigate Heath Care with Breast Cancer.

Elaine has been in the Health Care Industry for the past 20 years, as a Health Care Consultant. Her clients have been up and down the eastern seaboard and in parts of the Midwest of the U.S. In the last 4 years she has survived breast cancer twice and in the past year she has become a speaker for the Susan G. Komen Foundation in the Boston area. People repeatedly approach Elaine after she has told her breast cancer story and share that they both learned a great deal about breast cancer, and learned more about being an advocate for their own health, as well as their family and friends. Elaine feels her background was instrumental in helping her navigate through a difficult medical system and come out with at positive outcome.
