Breast Cancer Survivors Heather Port and Janine Knight

Heather Port of Asheville, NC and her mother, Janine Knight of Kernersville, share a very special bond. This is their story. http://www.wakehealth.edu/Comprehensive-Cancer-Center/ TRANSCRIPT: HEATHER: I'm Heather Port, I was born in Charleston, South Carolina. And we moved to Winston-Salem, so we've lived here most of our lives. JANINE: My name's Janine Knight, I was born in New York city- actually and moved all over the east coast. My parents finally settled here when I was 14. I have three children- Heather is my middle daughter. [pause] She called me at work. And I heard a very soft voice saying, Mom, I have cancer. Please call Jennifer and Brenda. [pause] HEATHER: In 2008, in March, around my birthday, I found a small little lump in my right breast. I got really nervous. It was over the weekend and I had my mom feel it- she happened to be in town and I had my husband feel it. They both said: Yeah, you need to go see your doctor. So I opted to go in and have a lumpectomy. When the tests- pathology- came back, it was ductal carcinoma in situ was throughout my entire breast and then I had invasive- that little lump was invasive ductal carcinoma. You could have knocked me over with a feather. I mean, I just was so devastated. I was 34 years old, I had a five-year-old and an eight-year-old. I didn't have any breast cancer risk factors. There wasn't a lady in our family that had it. I was so devastated. I ended up calling my mom. And I don't even remember what I said to her but I know I had to tell her I had cancer. When the mastectomy was done, I still had some margins that weren't clear from the DCIS which is ductal carcinoma in situ which is stage 0 breast cancer. And so I had to have radiation to the right breast. I had 38 treatments and I did that at Wake also. Because my kids were so little, I wanted to stay in Asheville to do my radiation. So I gave it a shot and I met the radiologist in Asheville and after sitting down with her and having to explain my case to her, I just said: You know what? I'm going to Wake. I lived with my mom from November to February during the week. And my mom and sister would drive me home on the weekends to see my kids and to be there. And luckily I have a huge support system. I said: You know, I know it's hard now. But when it's all over, if it happens to come back, how much will I regret having made a decision to walk away from them? It was tough being away from my family- but it was worth it. Because I feel confident. I feel confident that it's been taken care of and if it comes back, I've done what I needed to do. [pause] JANINE: I had never in my life been called back for anything. And Friday morning, the phone rang and I hear a voice say: We need to get you back in here for some more films of your left breast- and possibly an ultrasound. We'd like you to come in at 5:15. And I said: Okay. You won't tell me on the phone. No. I said: Well I can only assume it's not good. And she said: No, I guess it's not. We were sitting in his office and he came in and he turned around and looked at Jennifer and looked at Dennis looked at me and said: Well, I can see you know I don't have good news. And I said: Yeah- we figured that out. He said: Where do you want to go? I said I wanted to see Dr. Howard-McNatt at Wake- the same doctor Heather had. I will do everything at Wake. At that time, I really hadn't thought it through. And I had opted just to lose the left breast. But I also went through genetic testing. The found out when they did the broad panel that there was a little bit of a mutation in the gene that they can't explain because they'd only seen it in one other family. So at that point, I said: You may take them both. Because 10 years from now, 15 years from now, I don't want to face going through another mastectomy. So just get rid of them. So March 19th of this year I had my surgery. I was really really happy with Baptist and the way Heather had been taken care of there. I had the same oncologist- Dr. Melin- I love her. She's so calming when she comes in to talk to you and I love Dr. Marissa Howard-McNatt. She was terrific. HEATHER: I love the doctor who wanted to do my mastectomy up in Asheville and it was extremely hard to walk away from him. But when you're talking about your life, your health, and you're looking at your little kids. And you know that you have to do this for them. You have to make the important choices to do the things you need for your own life and your own body. And so when you find a lump, you have to get it checked. And when you find out what it is, you have to find the people that are really going to take care of you- that are going to see you through it. Because the ultimate goal is to live and I'm here today.

01:44
http://www.ccwc-fresno.org (for further information) http://www.DocuStory.tv (produced by) The CENTRAL CALIFORNIA WOMEN'S CONFERENCE was founded in 1988 by State Senator Ken Maddy of Fresno, California. The conference is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, non-political organization designed to educate, motivate and inspire women to be the best they can be in their professional and personal lives. (Tax I.D. #77-0178140). CCWC is a forum for women of all generations and backgrounds to share practical ideas on how to succeed in their careers while juggling increasingly complex and diverse life demands. The conference provides an exciting and fun atmosphere, where women come together to network. There are three general session keynote speakers and several professional breakout speakers providing seminars on a full range of issues affecting all women -- in the workplace, at home and in the community. Information on the benefits of products and services of interest to women is also provided at the "Marketplace" -- a trade show with over 175 exhibit booths. Previous luncheon keynote speakers have included former Governor of Texas, Ann Richards; former first lady of Egypt, Jehan Sadat; surgeon and medical correspondent, Dr. Nancy Snyderman; news anchor and journalist, Paula Zahn; ABC news correspondent, Lynn Sherr; bestselling author and lecturer, Deepak Chopra; financial expert and author, Suze Orman; actress & singer, Vicki Lawrence; Rita Moreno; Olympic Gold Medalist, Wilma Rudolph; 20th Century Fox President, Sherry Lansing; actress & entertainer, Debbie Reynolds; author, Gail Sheehy; actress and breast cancer survivor, Marcia Wallace and Olympic Gold Medalist Peggy Fleming. In 2001, Cokie Roberts was booked, but because of September 11th, she was not able to travel and was replaced by international news correspondent & journalist, Bettina Gregory. Other Keynote Speakers were Erin Brockovich, Star Jones, Joan Lunden and Nancy Brinker, founder of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation! For our 20th anniversary we brought to Fresno one of the screen's most beloved actresses...Goldie Hawn, and in 2008 with the focus on the economy, Suze Orman returned as the keynote speaker!! The 2007 and 2008 conferences sold out a month in advance. In 2009, with our theme "Reinvest in You" CCWC brought Robin Roberts, of ABC's Good Morning America to Fresno to speak to the attendees at lunch. CCWC had another sell-out attendance of over 3,500! For the 2010 Conference, CCWC has booked the international entertainment icon Marie Osmond as this year's luncheon keynote speaker. Another sell-out crowd is expected. To date, over 67,000 women have attended the annual conference in Fresno, and hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated to nonprofit charities that are solely for the support of women and children. These charities provide resources to women in the Central California valley such as emergency and homeless shelters, domestic violence and sexual assault, treatment and prevention, parenting classes and family counseling. We are pleased to announce that we will be donating $35,000 from the proceeds of the 2009 conference with a portion of this money designated for scholarships.
