First, thank you for visiting my mom's page. Our family never thought we would have to be writing Sara's journey through breast cancer. As most of you already know, in 2013 Sara had a prophylactic (preventative) mastectomy. The reason for this was due to being positive for the BRCA1 mutation, so therefore she has a much higher chance of getting breast cancer. That journey in itself was emotional and long, but worth it to know that it reduces the risk of developing breast cancer by up to 90+%.
Fast forward to August 2018. Sara found a lump her in right armpit. After a visit with the doctor and a biopsy, we were told on Friday, August 3rd that my mom has breast cancer. Nobody wants to hear, "You have cancer", and you never think it will be you or your loved ones. The fact is, when someone you love has cancer, the entire family has cancer. We will fight this together, and in the end, come out stronger.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
