Ms. Aida Padiernos was 51 years old in 2008 when she underwent modified radical mastectomy by me. The primary tumor was about 3 cm. Two nodes were positive for metastasis. She underwent 6 cycles of CMF (cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and fluorouracil) postoperatively. She did not have radiotherapy nor hormonal therapy. Cancer surveillance was done using symptom-sign-directed approach.
She has been looking forward to be included in my cancer survivor registry. When she came for checkup on April 13, 2019, she asked me to have our picture taken and to include her in my cancer survivor registry to give inspiration to others.
