Battling Cancer Is a Family Fight
After seeing her mother and grandmother fight cancer, Kathleen’s
daughter, Erin Hardifer, decided to get the BRCA test. Her result
was also positive. With two young daughters of her own, Erin
went to Dr. Camal for a voluntary double mastectomy, with
immediate reconstruction by plastic surgeon Asaad Samra, M.D.,
FACS, of Bayshore.
Kathleen has resumed her busy career and is
back to doing her favorite activities. Erin, 30, is in the final stages of the reconstruction
process with Dr. Samra.
“This has been a scary and life-changing journey, and I don’t believe I would have
gotten through it without Dr. Samra and my family,” says Erin. “I’d never felt
comfortable walking into a doctor’s office until I met Dr. Samra.
