When breast cancer strikes, are women really in charge of their healthcare decisions? Pink ribbons, a double mastectomy trend and ever-changing medical science complicate lives and choices. Women whose bodies carry the imprint of the surgical solutions speak out on The Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson. They discuss common fears like leaving family members behind and the need for good medical information. Two experts offer facts on prevention and treatment. Dr. Gayle Sulik, an author promoting women’s health rights, pushes back against mass media she says trivializes women’s suffering. Dr. Abenaa Brewster, a practicing oncologist, takes on sexuality, proper diagnosis and treatment unhampered by celebrity patients and popular culture. With issues like Angelina Jolie, the discomfort of staring eyes when sharing surgical history and the pain of watching a family member loose a breast cancer battle – the conversation is heart-warming and informative. This show is for you: females living with the disease, friends of women on the brink of surgery and anyone interested in stories about triumph over illness.

It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.
