So last week I get this flattering text from my dear friend stating; " OMG...Lookie what I got in the mail!!!! Making a donation in your honor, my beautiful, brave, strong, loving friend!!"
Wow!!!! First of all, thank you for the very kind words... I was interviewed by Ulman back in August for a potential article to be posted Fall 2019. This was a complete shock and surprise to me as well however, it was a beautiful surprise! I love everything about how they wrote my story. I hope that my story can help to inspire others as well as generate more funding for other young adults facing a cancer diagnosis. Thank you Ulman for the opportunity to share my story and why Ulman means so much to me. You can read the digital copy of this mailer below.
"Do you still have questions after reconstructive surgery? They will be answered at the 2019 Living Beyond Breast Cancer Conference: Sharing Wisdom, Sharing Strength breakout session Ask the Experts: Lingering Questions After Breast Reconstruction with panelists Minas Chrysopoulo, MD, FACS, and Tara Dunsmore-Williamson. Register, or check back in late September for a link to the recording.
LBBC asked members of their community to share their experiences with breast reconstruction. In this video, four young women who are part of Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Young Women’s Initiative share their questions about reconstruction, some that cause concern years after breast surgery. See the full article here and watch the video of myself and 3 other LBBC Young Adult Advocates share our lingering questions after our surgeries.
