When things go wrong in our lives we often cope by denying the problem. Margaret Ashmore was no different. Unfortunately for Margaret, her denial about her breast cancer eventually meant a mastectomy and stem cell transplant. Hear how Margaret found hope and comfort in the promises of God on today’s broadcast of FamilyLife Today. Joining Margaret is the surgeon who performed the mastectomy, Dr. Sally Knox.
Sally Knox, M.D., F.A.C.S., specializes in surgical oncology of the breast and is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American College of Surgeons. She is a breast surgeon at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. She is a committed Christian, also involved in community and foreign missions.
Dr. Knox has her medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX, in 1980 and completed her residency in general surgery at St. Luke's Hospital, Kansas City, MO, in 1985, where she was acknowledged as the Best House Staff Clinician. Additionally, she completed a fellowship in surgical oncology of the breast at Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, TX, in 1986.
Margaret Ashmore was born in Aransas Pass, Texas in 1953. She was raised in Bonham, Texas where she graduated high school and went on to earn her college degree at North Texas State University in Denton, Texas. It was in Denton that Margaret began to attend newly established Denton Bible Church in 1980 and has been a member there ever since.
Margaret has always been single – considered by her a gift so that she can be free to serve the Lord wherever and whenever He calls. She is also a breast cancer survivor.
Margaret currently serves on the board of the Association of Biblical Counselors.
