Twisting Fate

How to change the fate of families with cancer

Home: About Me

the story behind

Twisting Fate describes my journey from a breast cancer specialist to a breast cancer patient and back. The story brings you to the cancer clinic, the operating room and into the heart and minds of patients and families going through cancer. Along the way you will also learn about the inherited risk of cancer and how it may affect your children. 
I will take you through some of the most challenging and difficult questions in medicine and let you hear the voices of those who have won and lost the battle with cancer.
