After learning of being BRCA 2 positive, and a very dense history of cancer, I made the choice to undergo a series of elective preventative surgeries to minimize my chances of cancer, starting with an oophorectomy (removal of fallopian tubes and ovaries, which sent me straight into menopause at 39).
On January 5, 2018, I underwent a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy, the first of three to five surgeries to remove my breasts, surrounding tissue and reconstruct. It has been challenging, painful, breathtaking, and amazing all at the same time and I am right in the middle of it all and not yet out the other side. Wow – what a journey!2018January
I navigated the most intense, traumatic year of my life as I chose to end my marriage and navigate divorce.

I am unbelievably grateful for the blessing of our daughter.2018
