Pharmacy director shares advocacy lessons from breast cancer journey

Amy Benson says she believes in early breast cancer detection and seeking multiple opinions, if necessary, to advocate for one’s own health.

Following the proper visit schedule, Benson said the May 2018 test resulted in the discovery of what a radiologist thought might have been a cyst.
