Maggie's Treatment

Maggie had no time to discuss her options with her doctor. The biopsy showed the tumor was cancerous and she immediately had a mastectomy. She wondered if she would have chosen a different option if she had taken more time to evaluate her condition. Her surgery was followed by chemotherapy. Four years later, she had reconstructive surgery. Maggie's cancer came back a year later. After much thought, she decided to seek a bone marrow transplant. There was much planning and preparation.
