Get someone who knows cancer

It's very important, I feel, that if you're going to get checked for breast cancer that you go to someone that is familiar with cancer. A general practitioner is one thing. He can probably diagnose and say you need to go to a doctor, but you need to go to someone who is familiar in that field. Everybody can bake a cake, but the bakery knows a little something that you don't know. It's important that you get the right person to handle you. And I felt because I was in good hands that's what helped me, because the doctor knew what he was doing.
