"When the doctor had called me and told me about that, he, he said, he said 'Well, I'm telling you', I could just remember it's like it was even yesterday, he said 'I'm telling you from a surgeon's point of view that the breast should come off'. And I just really got mad and I says, 'no, I'm telling you from a patient's point of view the word is no, I will not do it. I says you do it my way first and then I'll try your way'."
