Brenda’s Story

In May 2009, I had an annual mammogram and ultrasound which were normal. Five months later, I felt a pain in my right breast and ignored it. About a month later, I went to see my doctor and the tests were run again. This time the radiologist called me in to explain the comparison study. I was referred to my doctor on an urgent basis and I had a feeling it was cancer.

I recently learned Susan G Komen Race for the Cure provides free mammograms to underserved women.

After a series of diagnostics and a biopsy, I learned I had breast cancer during the holiday season which was tough. I elected a double mastectomy with DIEP reconstruction. My recovery from surgery was the most difficult but I would do it again if I had to. I have learned the importance of enjoying the moment and living each day I have been blessed with.

I recently learned Susan G Komen Race for the Cure provides free mammograms to underserved women. I was impressed with the mission of the foundation and want to help with the cause. If I can be of service to others in a small way, I would love to. Join me on October 3, 2015 at the Race!  ~ Brenda
