Hi, my name is jennifer and I am a 25 yr old legislative advisor for the PR Senate and part-time law student for whom the thought of having breast cancer was a distant one despite a very strong family history. I was diagnosed on July 24th and am having a partial mastectomy on August 5th and radiation to treat a ductal carcinoma in situ stage 0, grade 3. Any suggestions on how to cope with treatment and what to expect?
