- Breast Cancer
When Linda Gottlieb learned she had breast cancer in 2008, she sought treatment at Fox Chase Cancer Center, where her husband had been successfully treated. Wanting to keep her breasts intact, Linda opted for a lumpectomy twice, but after her doctors could not declaare clear margins, she decided her only option was to have a mastectomy with reconstruction. This time, Linda's surgeons were finally able to remove all the diseased tissue. Linda has a very low chance of recurrance, and returned to work after eight weeks. After her experience with cancer, Linda encourages other women to perform breast self-exams because it saved her life.
