Lake Houston-area breast cancer patient finds peace by removing negative thoughts

HOUSTON (October04, 2018)

Alyia Wasi inadvertently noticed a lump in her breast as she walked down the stairs one morning. Tests revealed Wasi had breast cancer. She received treatment at Memorial Hermann Northeast from oncologist and McGovern Medical School professor, Julie Rowe. Wasi’s first round of chemotherapy began in July 2017. She ended up deciding to cut off her beloved hair instead of watching it grow thinner from chemotherapy. Before she could toss it out, her husband intervened. For her, the locks of hair remind her to focus on her inner self and direct her love toward others — not things.
