On August 4, 2008, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was after having a needle biopsy, which was after having my routine mammogram. Even though the news was devastating, it was caught early enough that I was diagnosed with the noninvasive type. I chose to have a double mastectomy due to the fact that my mother had passed away from breast cancer and I wanted to make sure that all the cancer was gone. I am coming up on my one year anniversary and I can say, "I'm cancer free!" I encourage everyone to do your monthly self-exams as well as getting your annual mammograms. It could save your life.
