unplanned journey to an unknown place. A treatment
plan is like having a roadmap for your journey. It is
a written course of action through treatment and
beyond. A treatment plan for stage I or II breast
cancer often has the following parts:
• Your treatment team – Cancer care is a team
effort. It’s helpful to have the names and
contact information of all your health care
providers listed.

greatly differ, test results that describe the
