When Suzanne was diagnosed with breast cancer a decade ago, she underwent a lumpectomy to remove the tumor, but refused to have the conventional reconstruction surgery most women undergo to rebuild the breast.
The reason: She believed medical research would lead to a better way to restore her body and was willing to wait for it. Last summer, the wait ended when she became the first woman in the United States to undergo a pioneering new procedure: stem cell breast reconstruction. Today, she is spreading the word on the option so other women may be able to make a similar choice.
When speaking to Newsmax Health, Suzanne revealed for the first time what she believes was the cause of her cancer.
