Our breast cancer team has studied under some of the best cancer doctors in the world, and continues to share expertise with other top breast cancer experts. This means they'll provide you with the best, evidence-based treatments for your breast cancer.
We are proud that our physicians have been recognized locally, statewide and nationally for their expertise, innovation and compassion.
Their great teamwork, combined with top-of-the-line treatments, saves lives.
Breast cancer, more than any other tumor, is very individual. We suggest that you use caution when reading blogs or comparing notes with a friend who's had breast cancer and was treated elsewhere. It's never an apples-to-apples comparison; even if you both have one lymph node involved it still could be two totally different biologies.
If you decide on treatment at EvergreenHealth's Halvorson Cancer Center, your first step will be meeting with your breast cancer nurse navigator. She will be your partner through treatment and aftercare.
