Age: 36

I'm 36 and married with one step-son.

I'm more than my risk… some fun facts about myself:

Favorite book / authors:
The Shack. We all must come to terms with our past and release it. Only then can we move forward to who we are to become.

My journey

Found out about my BRCA1+ status between 1 and 2 years ago. Tested because my mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother all had early onset of breast cancer and died before the age of 45. Skin cancer also runs in my family. I have not had cancer. Had an OOPH/ hysterectomy, and a prophylactic mastectomy with 2-step reconstruction.

The hardest part of my journey

Not being able to have biological children.

My participation with FORCE

Just knowing I'm not alone.

Other thoughts

I could not have made this journey without my faith in God and the support of my friends and family.
