My journey

My sisters and I were all diagnossed 11 months apart and all had double mastectomies. Look at our website threesisterssurvival.com
We were on the today show march 3rd and will be on "THE VIEW Oct 5th 2012 to share breast cancer with the world.

The hardest part of my journey

Having three sisters going through it at the same time and now our Dad has been diagnossed.

If I could do it over again

Yes 8 years ago when they said I had the BRACA gene and I should remove my breast. I would have DONE IT NOW
