I had breast cancer 18 years ago and was told I may only have three years to live without chemo! I had none, and or radiation treatment. I had a mastectomy and they didn't even check the tumor and how fast it grew. I fought five months with insurance to get this doctor and WOW! Dr. Wilkinson had them pull the tumor off the shelf and find out how fast it grew! He sat with me and a book and showed me the different types of growths and explained it all! When the results came back from the lab, the doctor said it grew at a moderate rate, and that I could have a reconstruction! I had a tram-flap, and have been clean of cancer for 18 years! All other doctors said I was selfish and had a religious problem because I found that after the surgery I was pregnant! My son is now a healthy 18 yr. old! They told me to abort him! I wouldn't ever kill an unborn child! I thank this Doctor for listening and believing in me, and if it weren't for him I may NOT have lived until now! Thank you ! I am still free of cancer!
