Patient Testimonials

Anastacia

Anastacia, breast cancer
“Sometimes things are going to happen that you don’t expect. You can’t fit yourself into a mold. Everyone fits a pant differently; everyone’s spirit absorbs things differently, so how could we heal the same?”

In her words and music, international singer and songwriter Anastacia is a strong and commanding presence. So it seemed incomprehensible when a routine mammogram resulted in a diagnosis of breast cancer. Thankfully Anastacia’s cancer was caught early. For her, weathering treatment meant accepting the individuality of her experience and its side effects, and she reminds others that everyone’s process with cancer is unique: “Sometimes things are going to happen that you don’t expect. You can’t fit yourself into a mold. Everyone fits a pant differently; everyone’s spirit absorbs things differently, so how could we heal the same?”
