I am 41...was diagnosed 10-14-2014 with breast cancer and I am brca1+. I had a double mastectomy 11-18-2014 , underwent 3 months of chemo and am currently undergoing reconstruction surgery. I am also having my tubes and ovaries removed (tomorrow in fact) due to the high risk of developing ovarian cancer. Luckily enough ive been able to work throughout all of this, only part-time at times but was also able to find a lot of resources to help thanks to the cancer center , hubert humphrey cancer center in robbinsdale mn. Ive never let this take me down, its only made me tougher and stronger than I already am!
