Sept. 25: “Lessons From a Nonbinary Cancer ‘Previvor’”

Former patient Libby VanWyhe and Megan Frost, MD, talk about medicine — and what they’ve learned from each other.


Libby VanWyhe doesn’t identify as one gender or the other. So when they tested positive for the BRCA gene, putting them at risk of developing breast cancer, they learned first-hand what it’s like for a nonbinary patient to navigate the realm of women’s health.

In this hour-long virtual conversation, VanWhye and Asante surgeon Megan Frost, MD, discuss aesthetic surgery techniques for patients who do not want implants, and what they both learned from this journey.
