Breast Cancer Survivor Emilia Hizon – 13 Years in Remission

Ms. Emilia Hizon was 55 years old when I did a modified radical mastectomy on her breast cancer in Manila Doctors Hospital in 1986.  After the operation, she received 6 cycles of chemotherapy.   She was lost to follow-up.  I did not know what happened to here until her daughter told me today, May 9, 2013, that her mother died in 1999, with a record of 13 years in remission for her breast cancer.  Her mother died of another disease not related to the breast cancer.
