“My nurse navigator proved to be my most valuable asset. From her first contact after my diagnosis, through her visits to my medical appointments, phone calls to me after chemotherapy, answering any and all questions, all the way to offering a spa night which allowed a safe place to deal with my appearance post-treatment – her support was just exemplary.”
