After being diagnosed in January 2012 with breast cancer, Diane Brooks took charge. She did her own research, challenged her doctor’s treatment plan and consulted doctors at a renowned research hospital. The result? Her treatment was changed to a hormone therapy program that quickly shrank a large tumor. Diane credits her take-charge attitude with saving her from a full regimen of chemotherapy and unnecessary surgery. That’s female power.
