Dr Marla Shapiro talks about her BC

Marla Shapiro is a Canadian physician who at the age of 48 was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. She is also a writer and on-air health journalist.

Here is a nine minute video of Marla talking about her cancer. Included is the transition from the roll of a physician to one of a patient, the decisions made leading to her double mastectomy and the uncertainty of the disease. Near the end of the video she offers advice on dealing with cancer.

Is she on Canada AM? I always enjoyed her and remember being shocked when she was diagnosed, so glad you posted this as I have thought of her off and on and wondered how she was doing with her disease.
Hope you are doing well and not too tired Daria, have a cozy weekend my friend.....:-)Hugs

Yes Bernie, she was on Canada AM. I like it because it gives the prospective of a physician turned patient.
