Episode 73: Switching Up the Standard of Care with Stacey Tinianov
Did you know that you have choices when it comes to treating your cancer? You CAN be in charge of your health and have the personalized care you want! My guest this week, Stacey Tinianov, is a mom, caregiver, and stage 0 breast cancer survivor. When she received her diagnosis at only 40 years old, she knew the standard of care was not for her, and she has a message to share for anyone else who feels the same.

- How to achieve personalized care and engage with the healthcare system
- What you might not know about obesity & breast cancer
