Sylvia's spirit is stronger than cancer.

Sylvia Breast Cancer Patient

When Sylvia Chapman went in for her routine mammogram on Sept. 10, 2020, at the Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner, she did not expect anything would be out of the ordinary. Upon noticing some abnormalities in her scan, Sylvia's radiologist, Dr. Brett Roberts, and his team performed a biopsy and confirmed what no one wants to hear, "You have breast cancer." After assuring Sylvia that she was in good hands, Dr. Roberts explained what to expect next, including surgery at the Gayle and Tom Benson Cancer Center.
