Survivor Story

Brittany Moye: When the nurse becomes the patient

As a nurse with UNC Health, Brittany Moye worked with sick and healing patients as part of her job.

But, in 2018, after finding a lump in her breast, she was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer, which included three tumors and 10 cm of DCIS. Brittany had surgery to remove the cancer, and is currently on a 10-year stint with Tamoxifen.

“You’re not excluded from going through hard things in life, it doesn’t matter what your profession is,” Brittany reminds us.

Watch our interview with Brittany to hear why she didn’t tell her co-workers about her diagnosis and the advice she has for other nurses who find themselves in the cancer patient seat.
