Hi there. I am a single mother of two. I was diagnosed with a form of highly invasive Stage III breast cancer in 11/06 and underwent a double masectomy in 01/07, followed up by months of Chemotherapy and radiation. I am just now getting to the phase to begin reconstruction. The great news is that I am a survivor and plan on being one for a long, long time.  --Ms. Karen Kaye Wardrop, Valrico, FL

 

I WAS DIAGNOSED IN 2001, AFTER LOSING MY HUSBAND OF 20 YEARS TO CANCER, ALONG WITH 4 OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS, WITHIN A YEAR PERIOD. MY SON OF 11YR, AT THE TIME, WAS DEVASTATED WITH DEATH. THEN MY BREAST CANCER, I TOOK RADIATION TREATMENT AND PO CHEMO FOR 5 YEARS. NOW 2007 I AM DOING FINE. --Donna M. Simon, Port Richey, FL
