My Breast Cancer Journey
Hello, my name is Tara and I have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 34 years old. I am a mother, wife, daughter and friend who had no previous symptoms of anything wrong with my boobs. In fact, the BRAC 1 and BRAC2 genes were negative when tested several years ago.
I am here to tell you, you’re not alone! I want you to feel confident and give you some insight into what having breast cancer is like for me. EVERY BODY is different, and each cancer diagnosis could be different. I am here to tell you about me having Stage 2a T1C N1A breast cancer. I am here to share my experience of chemotherapy, radiation, double mastectomy and several rounds of reconstruction surgery.
There is HOPE when it comes to being diagnosed with breast cancer! Please use this website as a resource to the tools I used and what I personally experienced while going through treatments.
If you have any questions, I encourage you to contact me as we are all in this fight together!
