Two Friends, Two Breast Cancer Diagnoses, and Life-Changing Treatment Decisions

When Amy received her diagnosis of breast cancer she leaned on her best friend Cathy for support. After meeting with cancer experts and counselors at Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Amy was able to slow down, learn about her options, and make the best decision for her. Several months into Amy’s treatment, Cathy was surprised to discover a lump during a breast self-exam, and soon also received a diagnosis of breast cancer. Upon Amy’s recommendation, Cathy talked with the experts at Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Together, they decided on a treatment plan that was right for Cathy. Today, Cathy and Amy are busy enjoying time with their families and friends, and their frequent coffee chats.
