Laurie P. Patient ExpertHealth Maven

Missoula, Montana
I am an active 44 year old from Missoula Montana. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 months ago and spent the winter recovering from bilateral mastectomy/oophorectomy surgeries and chemotherapy. I was able to continue running (albeit fewer miles) during chemo. I started doing yoga during chemo for the relaxation and conditioning benefits.

This fight has changed me, not only physically, but mentally,...

In 1993, I lost all the remaining hearing in my right ear (for unknown...
