This story is about patient Joanne Garcia, whose breast cancer scan led her oncology team at the Mays Cancer Center for patient care services within the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center to discover she had COVID-19, on the same day.

Due to her complicated diagnosis, the team of Drs. Maryam Elmi, breast surgical oncologist, and Virginia Kaklamani, breast oncologist, had to modify Ms. Garcia’s cancer treatment plan and look at alternative ways to offer her care. Garcia will have her surgery in January.
