Dr. Rachel Wellner held my hand and walked me through the tumultuous road of breast cancer. There were also times when she carried me. Last year, when I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer, it was Dr. Wellner who gave me my first hug and said “you can do this.” Having a doctor immediately take me under her wings (yes, she’s an angel!) was the comfort I needed during those dark days. Throughout my entire ordeal of enduring a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction, and later chemotherapy, I could always rely on Dr. Wellner for support and advice. She is truly a 24-hour, on-call doctor, with that unique and special heart that answers the phone.Amy Bodden Bowllan (Wife, Mother, Educator, Blogger, Runner, Breast Cancer Survivor)
