Today kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

It is today that Breast Cancer Awareness Month kicks off!

This was the last time I touched my real breast.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month brings together the thousands of Canadians who have been impacted by breast cancer to celebrate success stories like mine and also remember those we have lost along the way.

It has been 146 days since my double mastectomy. It was not an easy thing to do, but I am getting stronger everyday.  Early detection is the key, if your doctor says you are too young for a mammogram; get a new doctor. Especially if you think you are at risk like me. 

“You are way too young to have cancer. Your mother had it when she was what age again? Really, that young? I must have forgotten about that”. 

My doctor thought I was absolutely nuts and he did not detect it even with exams every 6 months.

If you have dense breast, get an MRI; it’s the only way to detect Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS).
