My journey started almost 12 years ago. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 triple negative breast cancer just before my 29th birthday in 2005, and then again on January 13, 2017. In 2005, I had 6 months of chemo and six and a half weeks of radiation. In 2006, I decided to get the gene teating done, and it turned out I carried the gene for both breast and ovarian cancer. October 2007, I had a bilateral mastectomy and started reconstruction surgery in 2008. Almost 10 years later due to several complications and infections, I'm still doing reconstruction. Had I known then what I know now, I NEVER would have had the bilateral done. I do however have a beautiful little girl and a great support system through my wonderful friends, family, and friends who are family. Love you all!
