Yolanda Bennett joined our navigator team in July. A breast cancer survivor herself, she supports newly diagnosed breast cancer patients work through the treatment options presented by their surgeon—choosing between lumpectomy or mastectomy, for example—so they can prioritize their goals and decide the course of treatment best suited to their individual needs and wishes. She also helps patients overcome barriers to care, including guiding them to financial resources, helping with transportation or insurance issues. Contact Yolanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The goal is healthy aging after breast cancer through intervention to prevent and manage health concerns. Contact Kate at email@example.com.
