My friend, only 2 years older, had a double mastectomy last week.
At the outset, we knew at the best, this is a 6 month process.
Well, her tests, post-surgery, came back clean. They got it all. She goes in tomorrow for the ‘spacers’ to be put in so her skin can grow over correctly for several months, then she can have reconstruction.
She is CELEBRATING beating cancer–she had taken off work several years ago to care give her mother at home, as she slowly died of it. Becky knew what she was facing and handled it all with humour and courage.
