My journey

I am 43 years old engaged to a very supportive man , I have two girls one of them is 25 years old and tested positive for the same gene mutation , my mother passed at age 47 from breast cancer and my dad at 73 from breast cancer too.

I always screened myself since age of 25 when my mom passed away ,I was always scared to have breast cancer ,never tough about having ovarian
cancer .

I was very upset after the diagnostic.

I had a full hysterectomy and went under chemo treatment

I had a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy and i am under reconstruction.



The hardest part of my journey

the after chemo side effects , the pain , the fear of being back to be the same person i was.

If I could do it over again

i would like to have been tested earlier to find out i carry the mutated genes.

My participation with FORCE

i trying to to find out about how i can help to educate another women to be more aware about anything different that is going on in our body and be alert.
