Carole Adornetto | Breast Cancer Survivor

“Breast cancer is a life-changing diagnosis, and you get to decide which direction you go. The decision is a little bit easier when you have extraordinarily competent doctors and a wonderful support network of friends and family.

Dr. Hutchins was amazing. Today was my five-year checkup, and I don’t have to come back. You really learn to trust in your doctors and to believe in them.

This has been a profound experience. I grew up when cancer was called the “c word” and was considered a death sentence. Here they treat it like a chronic illness that you get treated for and move on.”
