This FindaTopDoc Episode features Doctor Kathryn Pearson Peyton. Dr. Pearson currently practices Radiology, specifically focused on breast imaging. After witnessing the hardship of breast cancer diagnoses within her family, Dr. Pearson used her passion and knowledge to achieve medical advancements that would make the process of breast cancer detection more efficient. After attending Stanford University she did a radiology residency and Fellowship in Breast Imaging at UCSF Medical School. Dr. Pearson has practiced radiology for over 20 years in Jacksonville and San Francisco.
Due to Dr. Pearson’s passion, motivation, and intelligence, she founded a non-profit technology company in 2012 known as: Mammosphere, which improves breast cancer detection and reduces unnecessary additional imaging by providing electronic accessibility to prior comparison mammograms in hopes to tackle these alarming statistics.

Host Neka chats about myths and facts about breast cancer. Join us and listen in as she shares her own life experiences on the subject matter. Breast cancer is no longer a death sentence says The Cancer Center. Be sure to check your breast monthly for early detection. This advice is for both men and women!
Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms.. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk. If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer.
Reproductive risk factors
• Being younger when you had your first menstrual period.
• Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child.
• Starting menopause at a later age.• Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time.
Other risk factors
• Getting older.
• A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other
• A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child).
• Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2).
• Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest.
• Being overweight, especially after menopause.
Can’t afford a mammogram?
If you have a low income or do not haveinsurance and are between the ages of
40 and 64, you may qualify for a free or
low-cost mammogram through CDC’s
National Breast and Cervical Cancer
Early Detection Program. To learn more,

Here are a number of Bible verses of promise and encouragement that one survivor copied into her own notebook before, during and after treatment for my own cancer. When she was struggling and needed help, these were what she held onto. Taken from
General Web Resources for Women Fighting Breast Cancer
American Cancer Society (ACS)
A great resource providing information and patient support through multiple programs, including Cancer Survivors Network, Road to Recovery (rides to treatment), TLC (hair loss and mastectomy products), Reach to Recovery (one on one breast cancer support), and Look Good….Feel Better (help with appearance related side-effects of treatment), see below.

Janet Nudelman, Director of Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and Director of Program and Policy, Breast Cancer Fund
This organization works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease. They are bold and intentional in their efforts to translate a growing body of SCIENTIC EVIDENCE linking breast cancer and environmental exposure into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect our health and reduce breast cancer risk. They are helping to transform how our society thinks about and uses chemicals and radiation with the goal of preventing breast cancer and sustaining health and life. Last but certainly not least, they find practical solutions so that our children, grandchildren and planet can thrive. I don’t want to miss hearing a word of what Janet Nudelman has to say. This show made possible through the generous support of Chapman Automotive Group.
How do you go from one day not having breast cancer, the next day you’re diagnosed with it, and then you feel beautiful? Hold on now! There’s a huge gap there! How does anyone go from diagnosis to beautiful? And does one EVER get there?
Yes. It is possible. I’m living proof. But you must have a strong foundation. And in today’s show, you’ll meet a huge portion of the strong foundation, two prominent surgeons who will share much more than their medical knowledge with you, although they do a good deal of that, too. Dr. Alison Laidley and Dr. John Antonetti of Medical City Hospital located in Dallas, Texas share the softer side of the scalpel…they show you their hearts as they speak very candidly about a delicate topic.
Let’s kick off October right! Join us as we embrace our beauty!

Margaret Totten, breast cancer survivor, like many of us, has faced many fears and overcome many challenges in life.
Margaret is a Registered Professional Counselor, a Certified Life Coach (CPCC) and s Certified Intuitive Coach who cares deeply about helping clients find peace and balance in times of personal and professional change.
Margaret’s own experiences with life transitions and early stage breast cancer have shown her that healing and moving forward after life’s challenges takes both insight and focused action. She is now dedicated to helping others in similar situations become resilient, cope with uncertainty, and find safety within.
Margaret says “Nothing, however, prepared me for the feeling of being adrift and confused AFTER I had conquered surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for early stage breast cancer several years ago. It really became clear to me that this was something many, many self-sufficient, strong, capable women also face.”
“People are just starting to talk about what I like to call “Post-survival Pain.”
“This “after burn”, can be: -When we finally take our guard down. -When the constant need for daily battle ends. -When we try to return to work full-time. -When we try to live life as it was and return to what was “normal”
Letting Go... Includes giving up old ways of seeing ourselves.
Accepting Change… Just as change is a process, so is moving toward acceptance of it.
Margaret coaches and counsels clients from her private practice, Second Sight Coaching & Counselling. visit www.secondsightcoaching.com.
