Dr. Graff plays an integral part in numerous programs committed to ending breast cancer and breast cancer treatment.

Dr. Graff is well known for passionately connecting with patients to provide personalized, comprehensive oncology care, advancing breast cancer research, and breast cancer prevention.
“The time that I spend with my patients is my time away from my family, and just like their family is what is most important to them, my family is what is most important to me. They become my family. I know the names of their grandchildren, I know where they’re going on vacation next month, I know when their daughter is getting married… being a part of that and sharing those memories and stories with my patients, and seeing them blossom in their life after cancer, is so powerful. I am thankful every day that that’s what I get to do for a living,” says Dr. Stephanie Graff.
“We’re thrilled to have Dr. Stephanie Graff join the Foundation as a Medical Advisor. With her invaluable experience as a leading national expert on oncology care and breast cancer research, Dr. Graff will play an integral role in continuing to expand our global research programs and getting us closer to discovering an end to breast cancer,” says Susan Love, MD, MBA, Founder & Chief Visionary Officer at Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.
