Amy Wolf

  • Breast Cancer

My name is Amy Wolf and I am a breast cancer survivor who was treated at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Before my diagnosis, I worked with preschoolers, acting as an aid for children with autism. After going in for an annual physical, my doctor felt a lump in my left breast, but when she placed my hand on it, I couldn’t feel it.

Nicole Holtz

  • Breast Cancer

"I was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ in November 2010, after undergoing several biopsies and a lumpectomy at my local hospital. Even with that treatment, I continued to have discharge from my breast, and the surgeon said he had not gotten all of the cancer."

Mary Jean Flannery

  • Breast Cancer

After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis, Mary Jean Flannery decided to seek a second opinion from a specialist at Fox Chase Cancer Center, which is located within walking distance of her home. There, she was impressed with Dr. Marcia Boraas,  a surgical oncologist who specializes in treating patients with breast cancer. After learning her options, Mary Jean decided to undergo a mastectomy, with a course of chemotherapy before the surgery. She returned home just one day after surgery. "My advice to anyone facing a diagnosis like mine is to go to Fox Chase for treatment," said Mary Jean, who still goes back to Fox Chase regularly to meet with her medical oncologist. "During such a difficult time in your life, the caring and compassionate staff will guide and support you as if you are part of their family."

    After my mammogram and check up with Dr Winn, I asked her if I was eligible to receive the COVID 19 vaccine through Fox Chase. Dr Winn confirmed my eligibility and the nurses were able to schedule me for the COVID 19 vaccine that day. Dr Winn also put the wheels in motion for me to get scheduled for a baseline colonoscopy screening. Finally, the nurses gave me with a birthday gift. My birthday was later in the week. I thought this was such a nice surprise.
