What she wishes you knew about breast cancer

  1. “My best advice is to make sure you do your breast exams.”
  2. “You need a good medical team. One that you’re comfortable with. It has been six years for me, and my surgeon is like family. She continues to follow my progress. I see her annually.”
  3. “Reconstruction is challenging. It can be more invasive than the mastectomy, but long term, it is worth it.”
