Keep going girl!!
As a mum, of girls similar in ages to you, myself I just want to say how proud you make me feel. And so on behalf of all your female relatives and everyone on here I just want to say Well Done for coming through all that you have had to deal with. Thank you for coming back to tell us - giving inspiration to many. Every good wish for a long, happy and healthy life
Well done Emily ,
Your Mum would have been so proud of you coping with all the operations and reconstruction, especially at such a young age , but like you say finding the small lump early will potentially give you a much longer life span than any of your previous female relatives. Well Done and thanks so much for posting 5 years on. May you be happy and healthy. Sending you lots of love Tracy xxx
Emily, SO very many congratulations to you, for reaching your goal, for getting through the side effects, for coping with the body and emotional changes we all face at such a young age . I do hope in your next five years you can get to a place where BC and your mastectomies are part of your history but just a part and the rest of you is what you truely wish and hope for.
very very best of luck - I'm sure all the other women lost to BC from your family would be SO SO proud of you.
