Nikki’s Fight Like a Girl Story (Breast Cancer)


Breast Cancer Story I was diagnosed in February 2009 with invasive ductal carcinoma (breast cancer).

In March 2009, I had a bilateral mastectomy. I am now almost a three year survivor!!!! Cancer touched my breast, so I kicked its butt!!

Now my sister Patti is going through chemo for colon cancer. Also, my other sister Terrie was just diagnosed with invasive globular carcinoma (breast cancer).

I know they too are going to kick cancers butt!!!!
