They found a small mass in my right breast that was deep and small and we decided to remove it. It was cancer. They went back in to clean out the area and remove the lymph node. All came out clean and all within 3 weeks. Then I found out I qualified for partial breast radiation treatment with SAVI instead of 5-6 weeks of whole breast radiation. AMAZING. It was uncomfortable and I could not do much during this week, but putting it in and taking it out was much easier than I could imagine and now my radiation treatment is DONE. No burns or rashes. SAVI came highly recommended for my type of cancer and situation.

My surgeon was Dr. Kevin O’Farrell from ARC and my radiation oncologist was Dr. Carl Nuesch from Texas Oncology. I am so very grateful for this technology that treats only the area needed and not the whole side of my body. Now I am taking medication for 5 years with lots of monitoring, prayers and positive thoughts. I would be happy to answer questions or discuss SAVI with others who are facing treatment.
