Cancer was tough. Baylor Scott & White was tougher.

For Rebecca Alcozer, finding out she had breast cancer was like a punch to the gut. "It really hit me hard," she said. "But I decided to fight back."

At Baylor Scott & White Health, Rebecca had a whole team of cancer specialists in her corner. After surgery for breast cancer and chemotherapy, she's back to her favorite activities. Now with cancer behind her, she feels more empowered than ever. As she says, "When you come through something like breast cancer, you know you're strong."
