I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in October 2009. I found the lump myself and decided to have a mammogram. The mammogram reading showed nothing in March 2009. I felt sure something was wrong because the lump was getting bigger; Therefore, I went back for another mammogram in October 2009 and my results were mind blowing. Further testing showed that I have a BRCA1 gene for Breast and Ovarian Cancer. I have since been through Chemotherapy, and had my Breast & Ovaries removed. I will have my 2nd Reconstructive Breast surgery on August 4, 2011. Please pray for me. My prayers are with you all.
