    At 35 I was diagnosed with DCIS. Now I help others that are newly diagnosed. I enjoy talking with others that are in need of information or just an ear to listen. I will continue to fight back against cancer so that my kids won't have to worry about it.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): Bi-lateral mastectomy with tram flap reconstruction! Six weeks of recovery. Six hand granades sent home with me to drain several times a day! Minimal Impact to Daily Life? Four children under 9 years old and can't do anything with them!
