I am a high risk of breast cancer and have been apart of the high risk clinic since 2011 and have been waiting for my preventive surgery for over a year now but last week I finally signed my surgery consent form and am feeling empowered and so ready to live my life without that fear. Just needed to tell the world.

  • GO GIRL! I have a friend who has the gene and she, at 34yo is the oldest living female in her family. She has breast cancer, and has had an hysterectomy and her breasts removed. Sadly her 13yo daughter has the same gene xxx


  • Sounds interesting! Thanks so much for sharing this!


  • What a wait! Glad it’s nearly all over.


  • Wow, what a choice to make, it must be a relief not to have those two daily reminders of the danger you were in right there in front of you.


  • I hope everything worked out for you and your surgery went well.


  • Well done you! Congratulations on taking such an empowering step for yourself.


  • Yay this is great news bet your on top of the world right now. I hope everything goes smoothly and you will get some reassurance from the surgery. x


  • Happy that you are feeling more empowered now with your life! good luck!


  • Congrats, you must want to shout it out to the world,, do just that as loud as you can. What a relief it must be for you. My mum had a mastectomy in the 70’s, cancer free :)
