Angela’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Angela's Story (Breast Cancer)I have survived breast cancer twice, all before turning 42.

I was diagnosed at 30 with stage 3 breast cancer, and again at 41 with stage 1 breast cancer.

I recently had a double radical mastectomy, and now I am having breast reconstruction.

My theory is this: “Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do, but to hold it together when everyone would expect you to fall apart, that is true strength.”
