Kourtney has been battling advanced stage breast cancer for two and a half years. After chemo, double mastectomy and radiation, during reconstruction surgery cancer was detected again. More chemo for the last year and in the meantime surgery and radiation has left her with lymphedema and neuropathy and severe constant pain and loss of the use of her right arm for a year. Recent scans show the cancer has spread including a significant amount in that arm adding to the pain she’s already had. Due to this she made the difficult decision to have her arm removed to hopefully significantly ease her pain and improve her quality of life so she can continue to fight. Kourtney has been my best friend since age 6 and I’ve never known anyone as positive and brave and strong as she is!
