Title: Obstetrician Gynecologist
Company: Novant Health Bradford Clinic
Fundraising Goal: $5,000
As a practicing obstetrician gynecologist in the Charlotte community for the past 20 years, I have had the privilege of sharing tremendously meaningful days in the lives of my patients. In the midst of sharing the most joyful times in a family’s life, I have also shared some of the most devastating times with a new breast cancer diagnosis.
For me, breast cancer awareness evokes the vivid memories of the new 30 year old first time mother diagnosed with a breast cancer that was supposed to just be a clogged milk duct; it means the conversation we have when a patient I haven’t seen in a number of years presents with a new breast lump that we both know is a cancerous tumor prior to any other testing; it is the face of the 16 year old I delivered whose mother fought tirelessly to the very end for the chance to see every day possible in her young daughter’s life.
Breast cancer awareness means counting on organizations like Komen Charlotte to help find a way so I never have to share one of those times with my patients and their families again. I hope you will join me in this quest.
