“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.”

—Maya Angelou

Throughout the fickle course of life, our thoughts and actions are heavily influenced by the circumstances of our past experiences; hence, they frame our understanding of this labyrinthine world in which we dwell. Sarah Shubeck, MD, MS, revealed that, at a very young age, she trekked the turbulent journey of breast cancer alongside her mother. This consuming experience ignited the momentum to pursue her specialty of breast oncology and confront the wicked demon that afflicted her family. As the experience is embedded in the fabric of her being, Dr. Shubeck sees her mother in the eyes of each patient and partners with them on their daunting journeys. With a one-of-a-kind blend of firsthand experience, genius and an infectious smile, she is able to cast a bright light as her patients venture down an intimidating (and sometimes revisited) road.

Motherhood is a fascinating experience that brings great fulfillment, as well as challenges. Dr. Shubeck’s complications with breast-feeding during her first pregnancy (as a resident) led her to think about larger issues related to lactation support, as she (and many other surgical trainees) faced challenges with finding time and safe spaces for milk expression. For years, many women in medicine have been advised to conceal their motherhood, as it is believed by skeptics not to be a bundle of joy for working mothers, but a bundle of lost opportunities. Dr. Shubeck has always been adamant about slaying that ignorant notion and advocating for professional mothers. “I don’t have to choose between motherhood and surgery. I can do both,” she stated in her 2020 Today, show interview. She uses her platform and unique voice to deliver the most thoughtful and comprehensive options for surgical mothers as well as her resilient patient population. A host of female trailblazers, like Dr. Shubeck, stand stoically at the forefront of surgery.

Each day, after a lively 6 a.m. breakfast with her family—husband, newborn son and daughter (born during her residency)—Dr. Shubeck looks forward to building lifelong partnerships with her patients. She finds glamor in the powerful connections, discussions and collaborative decision-making she experiences with her patients to uncover what’s most sacred and important to them. A breast cancer diagnosis can completely derail a patient’s life, as many are the nuclei of their families. This enormous weight is incredibly difficult for even the strongest soul to bear alone. Dr. Shubeck is there to offset the heavy load by offering guidance, options, hope and support as patients precariously try to get back on track.

In our conversation, it became clear that Dr. Shubeck is committed to this specialty for a lifetime. Amy Arundel, one of her patients, joined us to tell her story and how Dr. Shubeck changed her life.

Dr. Shubeck was incredibly personable and sincere as she welcomed us into her world—which is made content by her beautiful family, as well as her buoyant, brave and colorful patients, like Amy Arundel.

This is Sarah Shubeck, Behind the Mask.
