Breast cancer patient honors her compassionate doctor


Ann Partridge, MD, MPH, was instrumental in the founding of Dana-Farber’s Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer, part of the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers. The program, which focuses on the unique needs of breast cancer patients under 40, helps patients access fertility, genetic screening, and counseling services.

Dr. Partridge was recently recognized at the annual Kenneth B. Schwartz Compassionate Healthcare Dinner by one of her patients, Bridget Spence.

In this video, Bridget shares her story and explains how Dr. Partridge’s care and compassion allowed her to plan her wedding and look ahead to the future.
