October is breast cancer awareness month and it is my goal to teach every single one of you how to be your own breast advocate.
Let me teach you HOW TO SAVE YOUR OWN LIFE…
NO woman should go through what I went through. I will do everything in y power to fight breast cancer one follower at a time. :)
1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer
Not only will one in eight develop it, 80% of them will have absolutely NO family history or genetic mutations. None, just like me.
To make it clear, of my 60,000 Instagram followers and 60,000 monthly website visitors, about 90,000 of you are women and approximately 11,000 will develop breast cancer. Crazy isn’t it?
Stay tuned, that is more to come…
In the next few weeks, I will teach you what you need to know about breast cancer screening and prevention and as a patient, you can start asking the right questions and request the appropriate tests when you visit your gynecologist, primary care or even breast surgeon, just like I did.
For those of you who always ask me if I did reconstructive surgery… Yes I did!
This picture is of me 4 weeks post mastectomy with my “plastic boobs” as my 7-year-old daughter calls them. :)
