When Greg Schultz discovered a lump on his chest in 2007, he had a difficult time believing it could be breast cancer. The marathon runner had no family history and was the picture of health. The lump continued to grow. More than a year after he found the lump, he got the breast cancer diagnosis.
Earlier this year, the unthinkable happened and Anna was also diagnosed with breast cancer. The chance of a woman having breast cancer is one in eight. For men, the chance is one in a thousand. The odds of a husband and wife both being diagnosed with breast cancer are mind boggling, but that’s what happened to Anna Graether and Greg Schultz of Kansas City, Mo.
Guest Host Ryan Lefebvre sits down with Greg and Anna to discuss the challenges and triumphs in their fight against cancer.
Both Anna and Greg received treatment at the Breast Center
at St. Joseph Medical Center. For more information about the couple, read the article which appeared in the Fall 2011 edition of Carondelet Health’s magazine Health Wise here.
