Julie Eichholz’s True Rewards Story

Julie Eichholz’s True Rewards Story

Julie was diagnosed with breast cancer after finding a lump near her armpit.


After being diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer, Julie's radiologist recommended she follow up with Dr. James Clanahan, breast surgeon and medical director of Memorial's Harold & Dixie LePere Breast Health Center. 

Dr. Clanahan performed a biopsy that showed Julie actually had stage 2 breast cancer. Following chemotherapy at Siteman Cancer Center, Dr. Clanahan performed her double mastectomy. 

Julie says that Dr. Clanahan is the trifecta: skilled surgeon; compassionate, patient, and caring; and accessible. In addition, he answered all of her questions and continues to be an invaluable resource to her.
