    Celebration (Finished treatment): Double mastectomy followed by 30 treatments of radiation. My last treatment was on July 12, 2012. Went back to work five weeks after surgery and continued to work during my treatments.

    Decision Point (Should I have reconstructive surgery?): I made a decision not to have the reconstructive surgery. I am very happy with my decision and with my prosthetics.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy)

    Decision Point (What type of surgery would be in my best interest to beat cancer?): My mother passed away after a very long battle with breast cancer. I had been dealing with cystic breast since my twenties. Two years ago my gynecologist referred me to a specialist because she could not examine my breast properly due to the many cycst in both breast. For two years I had a mamogram followed by a MRI to capture anything behind these cycst. This year the MRI picked up the cancer the momogram missed. My decision to remove both my breasts was the right decision for me based on my circumstances.
