Patient Stories - Judy Scheuerell
Journey with cancer can’t trump travels
Judy Scheuerell has traveled to exotic locations such as India and Russia.
But in 2007, her love of travel led to a foreign journey — a journey with breast cancer.When Judy, 68, had her annual mammogram, they found a lump in her left breast. She had early-stage breast cancer. Judy was treated at the Coborn Cancer Center in St. Cloud and was fortunate enough to be a candidate for MammoSite® 5-Day Targeted Radiation Therapy.* “MammoSite therapy got me through my radiation treatment in less than a week and back to my normal, active life again,” Judy said.
“The day that I went in for my mammogram to the end of MammoSite therapy took less than one month. And, I only had mild fatigue and discomfort. It was amazing.”
Judy has returned to her everyday life and continues to do all the things she loves: play golf, tennis, bridge, ski, read and especially travel.
*MammoSite® is a breast conservation therapy that delivers radiation in the space left when the tumor is surgically removed. MammoSite may be an option for patients with early-stage breast cancer, who are candidates for a lumpectomy and meet certain other criteria. A benefit of the therapy is the shortened radiation procedure time — five days total versus the traditional 35 days.
