Beating Breast Cancer, Together

“MY PREGNANCY WAS TOTALLY NORMAL UNTIL MY 36TH WEEK—THAT’S WHEN I LEARNED I HAD BREAST CANCER. I NOTICED A LUMP IN MY LEFT BREAST AND MENTIONED IT TO MY OB/GYN, DR. DANIELLE HOLMES, [WHO] ARRANGED FOR ME TO HAVE AN ULTRASOUND AT VIRGINIA HOSPITAL CENTER WOMEN’S IMAGING. THEY FIT ME IN RIGHT AWAY.“


“Because Gillian had very dense breast tissue and her breasts were swollen from pregnancy, the images from the sonogram were not definitive,” says Bonnie Ahn, MD, a radiologist specializing in breast imaging. “But I could see that the growth looked like it had tentacles—most benign tumors are smooth. I asked her to come back early the following morning for a biopsy.”
