Nurse navigator Lillie D. Shockney is intimately familiar with breast cancer. She's directed the Johns Hopkins Breast Center for nearly 20 years and leads their cancer survivorship program. She's also written 14 books and hundreds of articles on the subject.

In this episode of Off The Charts, Lillie shares numerous stories—from patients and from her own family—and discusses her work helping cancer patients live their best possible life.
