Treating Breast Cancer in 5 Days


Because Maureen’s cancer was found early, she was a candidate for a type of treatment called SAVI, which delivers radiation to the tumor site through small, flexible tubes. SAVI is finished in just five days, compared to weeks with other types of radiation treatment.

Maureen shares her experience at Sharp Chula Vista’s Barnhart Cancer Center and offers important advice for women over 40: Don’t put off getting your mammogram.
