DIAGNOSED AT 31

Tell us a little bit about your story?
I was diagnosed with HER2 breast cancer in October 2018 at the age of 31, which is extremely rare with a 1 in 10,000 chance of contracting this at that age. Seeing as my mother had breast cancer just 4 years before, I had urged my doctors for mammogram checks and they all declined them in the years leading up to the diagnosis on an account of being too young and healthy for them.

Tell us about your breast cancer experience? And, How are you now?
On December 26th I started 6 sessions of chemo followed by a double mastectomy. I’ll have completed my treatment in January 2020 and my final surgery was October 2019. Luckily I’m now on the other side of this process and I have reassurance that my ability to have children is restored.

Has this experience changed your perspective on anything? – Life, family, yourself, future?
I have decided to use my voice to bring awareness for early age breast cancer, advocating early detection and pushing doctors for early examination and detection efforts, while providing advocacy, support, inspiration and information to women diagnosed with breast cancer.
