    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had the double masectomy for precaution I did not want to go though this again. I had stage zero when this all started but when my breasts were removed and pathology came back I was told there was a lymph node in my left breast which had the cancer and is was stage 2 I was stunned because we didn't expect any more treatment. This was a very difficult day and the start of the fight for my life. I was determined to win.
