Sandy's Story

Door County Medical Center employee Sandy Sievert was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in June 2013 at the age of 48. Her mother had passed away from breast cancer 40 years prior and with this health history in mind, had always scheduled regular mammograms.

“Be an advocate for yourself. Your insurance agency often dictates that you don’t need a mammogram, but it’s important for your peace of mind and to stay healthy,” says Sandy.
