Patient Stories: Breast Cancer

Meet breast cancer survivor Rebecca Soulliere who underwent treatment during pregnancy. 

“It started as a routine mammogram. Within days I was told I had breast cancer. I was reassured immediately that an army would be taking care of me. When you come in contact with any of the staff members, they are friendly, welcoming, concerned and compassionate. Who wouldn’t be delighted or want that for their care? The staff and I share the same goal – my wellness. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

“When I first found out I was Breast Cancer (BRCA) positive, I was told that I had an 87 percent lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. As you can imagine, I had many questions that needed to be answered. I chose the Comprehensive Breast Center at UMass Memorial because it offered everything from high-risk screening to preventative treatment options. Staff members discussed my options, answered my questions and made me feel at ease. I am very pleased with my decision and am secure in knowing that I have significantly reduced my risk of developing breast cancer. I would highly recommend the UMass Memorial Comprehensive Breast Center to anyone needing expert guidance in high-risk breast care.”
