I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2000. I was 39 years old and had six young children. Thank God for family as I could not of gone through 6 months of chemo and 5 weeks of radiation with out them! My mom and my sisters made sure the kids and house was taken care of when I couldnt do it. Thanks so much to them.
I am a nine year survivior!!! My mom is 71 and was just diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. She is currently going through chemo and is losing her hair. She is the toughest woman I have ever known. I'm thinking about shaving my head to show that I support her. I did do the BRACA testing and it came back negative. Please make sure that you do monthly exams. Early detection does save lives.
