Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before Breast Cancer

Dr. Pamela Munster is a medical oncologist at UCSF Medical Center, who treats patients diagnosed with breast cancer in the San Francisco Bay Area. She herself was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 at age 48. As both a doctor and a patient, she has seen both sides of the experience, and has gained unique insight and perspective into what it’s like to face breast cancer.

With wisdom and empathy, Pamela shares some important lessons with the breast cancer community: friends, family, newly diagnosed patients, people living with metastatic disease, or anyone seeking to provide support or raise awareness.
