    Hi, Lynn51, my name is Amber. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer when I was 28. I have been cancer free for almost 10 years. In June, my family moved back to Utah after 12 years in the Midwest. We are LOVING being in Salt Lake :) I just found this great online community. What a great resource!

    Celebration (Birth): A third post-cancer baby blessed our family in the Summer of 2009 :) She is a perfect bookend to our beautiful bunch! Family of seven and happy as can be!

    Procedure or Surgery (Breast Reconstruction (Implant)): I had tissue expanders and then implants. I LOVE having something there, after years without! I don't have to wear a bra, since my breasts are so gravity-defying! :) I was amazed at the skill my surgeon used to reconstruct my nipples. SO COOL!

    Celebration (Birth): I was certain that chemo had destroyed my fertility, since I stopped menstruating after my first two chemo treatments. I had always wanted to have lots of children, so this was a painful loss. Just over a year after my diagnosis, I started being suspicious that the flu I'd been enduring for two months wasn't actually the flu. Sure enough, I was three months pregnant!! It felt like a miracle! We added our sweet son to our family in the Fall of 2004, a year and a half after my diagnosis.
