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

I was diagnosed in June 2012. In July 2012, I decided to have a bilateral mascetomy. I had stage one cancer.

When the test results came back after surgery, they showed the cancer was forming in the left breast. If I had just removed the right side, I would have been back in surgery within months.

I chose to do reconstruction. It was very hard looking in the mirror and seeing part of my body gone. After several procedures and about a year or so, the reconstruction was finished.

If it hadn’t been for God, my family, and friends, I do not believe I could have gone through all of this. This past July, I reached five years cancer-free.

I just encourage women to have mammograms. I wish no other woman would have to go through all of this.
