Jamie’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Jamie's Story Breast CancerI was 33 years old when I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. I had two young boys, ages 2 and 5. I opted for a bilateral mastectomy and completed 4 rounds of chemo. Today, almost 3 years, later I’m happy to say I’m cancer free.

This is me after failed breast reconstruction. A local mammography studio asked me to do a photo shoot for their new studio. I agreed, and a body artist painted my chest. I will never do reconstruction again and have learned to embrace my scars. I hope and pray this can give other women hope and inspiration that breast cancer can take a lot, but you can move forward and live a happy, beautiful life.
