Hello Family and Friends!
As many of you know I am a BRCA+, triple-negative, breast cancer survivor. Raising awareness and research for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer has been a big passion of mine over the past several years. Only about 10% of those who are at high risk for breast cancer even know they are at risk. Cancer became a big part of my life when I was only 8 years old and my mother was diagnosed with a very advanced staged breast cancer when she was only 32. She passed away about 2 years later. I had always been told how much alike we were, but I never realized how accurate that was until at 31 years old I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Because of medical research I was very fortunate to find out that my breast cancer was hereditary, which allowed me to take the right course of action and nearly 12 years later, I am still here and cancer-free. My hope is that we can continue to strive so that my children and all others affected with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer can have even more hope for the future. With enough help, support, and research I believe this will be accomlished.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
