GoodHousekeeping is looking to interview a person who had a breast concern/changes, but was dismissed initially by their doctor as a pregnancy, perimenopause, or other non-cancer reason, but pushed for testing and was then diagnosed and treated for breast cancer.
If this sounds like a situation similar to yours, and you'd be willing to be interviewed by GoodHousekeeping, please send us a PM as soon as possible and we'll get you in touch.
During this time of fear and uncertainty in our world, we want to remind you that there's no better place than our online Community to restore hope, sanity, and support -- we are all here for you!
Join us to discuss with others here.
