The Keep A Breast Foundation made plaster molds of women's busts and auctioned them off to raise funds for breast cancer awareness. I thought this was a fantastic idea. I emailed them immediately, and days before my reconstructive surgery, I had a plaster mold made of my torso.
I decided that I would undergo a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. I remember the frustration I felt at not having the mastectomy sooner. I wanted to fast track the whole thing. I wanted those things off yesterday.
Since I have been allowed this extra time my passion is now helping others who have just been diagnosed with cancer. Nine years later I hope to continue to make a difference. I am so blessed and grateful. I have put my puzzle all together and now I can put it to rest.
