Valuable resource

I can’t think of a better person to teach us than a breast surgeon/specialist who is also a survivor. What a great resource for those of us whether diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer or metastatic (aka stage IV aka advanced), these are topics we deal with all the time! Great job @Dr.Halaharvi!! ❤️

I’m so grateful to have found this podcast. I am 6 mos cancer free and staying cancer free body and mind is so crucial, yet challenging. I have creeping moments when I think of reoccurrence - it has definitely given me inspiration to strive to better care for myself and live the life I desire. I am excited to listen more.
