Lincoln Surgical is here to support our patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
What is your role in the Breast Health Team?
Kala Edgar, BS, CN-BA, explains, "I am actually one of the breast navigators. I'm a breast advocate so I do some of the genetic testing, help to get charts together, and make sure that we have everything that we need for a patient before we see them."
What do you enjoy most about working with breast patients?
Kala said she likes relating as a woman to another woman. "Of course, with the breast cancer, you don't know what they're going through necessarily, but it's a lot easier to relate to on a woman basis and with the issues that they are having and kind of just empathize with them a little bit more. I like being there for them," she said. "We're here...whatever they need."
