To Whom It May Concern:
October 17th 2008 my husband and I were so excited. We were living in Pennsylvania and going to retire in December and move back to what we consider our home, the Tampa Bay Area. On October 31st 2008 our lives changed drastically. The words cancer rang in my ears, I could barely think; much less make a decision about breast reconstruction. We stayed in PA for immediate treatment. I had a segmental mastectomy, a full year of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation at Fox Chase Cancer Center, PA. At the conclusion of treatment we moved back to Florida, settling in Indian Rocks Beach some 48 miles from Hudson.
After exhausting all the information I could online and off, I made adecision to have Dr. Roach do the breast reconstruction at REGIONAL Medical Center Bayonet Point. Understanding there would be at least 3 surgical procedures.
Dr. Roach is amazing. He never rushes through appointments. He listens to me and we made the plan together. I am never rushed at appointments. Dr. Roach’s surgical team is also amazing.
