Breast Cancer affects one in eight women, and those who receive a diagnosis must quickly face decisions about treatment, surgery and even fertility. Health care navigators, breast coordinators and support groups can help with these decisions. On this Line One, host Dr. Jillian Woodruff hears a personal story from her guest, Angel Wallis, of self advocacy and the complications of navigating a breast cancer diagnosis.

This discussion focuses on Wallis’s personal journey through her diagnosis. Not everyone diagnosed with breast cancer has the same or as many treatment options due to the particular nature of each diagnosis.

HOST: Dr. Jillian Woodruff


  • Angel Wallis, RN, BSN, Medical Surgical Unit at Providence Alaska Medical Center
