Inflammatory Breast Cancer – Suzy’s Story

By Susana Shephard

Suzy Underhill's life took an unexpected turn less than a year ago when she discovered a large lump under her breast. She immediately went to see her gynecologist who recommended that she consult with a specialist. Suzy's good friend had told her to schedule an appointment at Mayo Clinic and soon after she consulted with specialists at the Breast Clinic.

After several tests her physician at Mayo Clinic delivered the grim diagnosis, inflammatory breast cancer, a rare and fasting growing cancer requiring immediate treatment. Suzy shares with us her journey battling her disease and how the exceptional care provided by her Mayo team along with her supportive family and positive outlook helped to get her through her treatment.
