Every Survival is a Story

Oklahoma Proton Center’s Medical Director, Dr. John Chang, was featured as part of the cover story in FitCity Magazine along with Sarah McLean, director of Project31. In the story, Dr. Chang stresses the importance of routine screening, getting mammograms regularly, and scheduling exams with your physician.

“Breast cancer is the #1 diagnosed cancer in women,” says Dr. John Han-Chih Chang. Between 250,000 to 300,000 cases are diagnosed yearly, and roughly 55,000 to 60,000 women die from their disease. However, if detected early, the cure rates are as high as 95%.

Sarah McLean is a two-time breast cancer survivor and the founder of Project31, a foundation that helps women and their families restore their lives during and after breast cancer. McLean explains that it’s essential to have a community of survivors to ask questions of and hear different perspectives from. She emphasizes that they are not working against doctors but working with them to create the best plan for each patient.
