Jeanne Lieder & Breast Cancer

Jeanne Lidner
Patient: Jeanne Lidner, Derwood, MD

Location: Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center

Service: Breast Cancer

Doctor: Nancy Markus, MD

Jeanne Lieder, 53, of Derwood, Md., is a fitness professional who radiates positivity and practices what she preaches to her clients. She eats well and walks daily. She even hula-hoops to stay in shape. She was surprised, then, to discover a hard mass in her right breast in March 2015.

Lori Hartinger, nurse navigator at the Shady Grove Adventist Aquilino Cancer Center, educated Lieder on her diagnosis and coordinated her care.
