When I was 34 I found a lump on my left breast I let it go for a few weeks than dicided to have it check out I went to the ER and they tried to get liquid out with a needle and they couldn't so they set me up for a mammogram and was trouble of what they found they sent me to a surgurn who to a bi surgery and found I had breast cancer I was in so much shock I just could'nt believe it and when he told me he had to remove my breast i was devasted I felt my husband would not want to be with me any more and that it would make me ugly. I was wrong he still loves me and stood by me all the way . Just this year i had reconstructive surgery and have a breast again .They used my stomach . I still need the nipple but since have lost my medical card . and can't afford to have it done. It has been rough and sometimes I still have pain where they had to remove my breast. Iam now cancer free but it has been a hard road to overcome.
