Your Story
I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer in 2004 at the age of 45.  I had chemo for 6 months and a bilateral mastectomy as well as radiation.  I finished with 6 more months of chemotherapy. A year and a half later I had reconstructive surgery. God was faithful through it all and currently there is no evidence of disease.  I have a wonderful husband and three children for which I am thankful for everyday.  I am happy to talk to anyone who is newly diagnosed, if I can be of help.
