Diane's Story

“It started with a pingpong ball of a cyst in my left breast. I had no insurance. I was afraid of doctors. I was hoping and wishing it would just go away.”

When Diane first found out about Family Health Partnership Clinic from one of its volunteer doctors, it had been over 10 years since she’d been to a doctor. She’d had a benign tumor in her 20s and a cyst around 40 that went away on its own. But she’d just never been able to stick with frequent screening and mammograms. This time was different, though. “I went back because...it’s volunteer-based and it just shows you that there’s people who care out in the medical community.”
