#95 When the nurse becomes the patient. Ann's battle with Stage 4 breast cancer.

View descriptionShare

RFDS Flight nurse, Ann Rahn and her husband Wayne are passionate advocates for the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Ann wants women of ALL ages to understand that there are many different types and stages of breast cancer, that can impact women in any stage of their life. In the midst of Covid and working as a nurse in Darwin, Ann realised her breast was feeling sore. But having experienced no other symptoms or signs, Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer was certainly not the diagnosis she was expecting.
