Muy mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33 and passed away at age 37. My grandma had breast cancer and survived only to have a reoccurence in her late 70's, she passed away a few years ago. My moms cousin died from breast cancer in her 30's as well and my grandma's sister died in her late 70's of breast cancer.
The hardest part of my journey
Although my journey has just begun, the hardest part was going to get my results and having my sister there and fearing that I would be negative after me having to tell her she was positive. Not that I didn't want to be negative I just didn't want to have it be right there in her face if that makes any sense.
If I could do it over again
I would have gotten tested earlier.
My participation with FORCE
So far it has been great in providing me with information and resources
