4 Years Ago Today
My facebook memories showed me that 4 years ago today my feed was filled with prayers as I underwent surgery for a mastectomy to prevent breast cancer due to my BRCA genes. I'm so very thankful for my encouraging friends but also for my supportive husband and mom. I wish I could say that BRCA hasn't touched my life since then, but every 6 months I'm reminded my by GynOc/OBGyn that I should get a hysterectomy. BRCA significantly touched my family this past year in that my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time after being cancer free for 12 years and my aunt was also diagnosed with breast cancer for a first time. I'm hoping that cancer doesn't touch our family again that that these preventative surgeries were worth it.
