The first time I had it was 15 years ago and I was 44 years old. I had ductal carcinoma in situ stage 2, I had chemo 6 times and after I finished the chemo I had reconstruction on my right side. Things where going good for the 15 years. I would go every year for my check ups and mammograms. Well in Oct of last year (2015) I went for my yearly mammogram and they found something and advised me to see my dr. I had already make my yearly appt with the breast cancer dr. When I took the film to my dr. he didn't like what he say and advised me to have my left breast removed. It was cancer again, but this time it was only stage 0.

After having cancer the first time I started working with the American Cancer So. I visit other women ( and 1 man) that have had surgery and talk to them and take them gifts. I also started a cancer support group at my church. I enjoy talking to the ladies and giving them hope that there is life after cancer. And now I can prove to them there is life after having cancer twice.

Thank you
