Diagnosed Age 23
"I starting feeling my boobies at age 20.
I'm currently Age 43 and a 20 year survivor!"

"I was at the beginning of a 3 week holiday in Germany when in the shower I felt a lump in my left breast. I had felt my boobies since I was 20 and knew that this lump felt different. Several weeks later I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 23 years old. When the surgeon was telling me I thought someone else was behind me, that he was talking to someone else because at age 23 this really couldn't be happening to me. After my surgeries and recovery I kept feeling my right side. 7 months later at age 24 I was diagnosed again with breast cancer. Yes this really was happening to me. This year I celebrate 20 years as a breast cancer survivor. Had I not felt my boobies and been in touch with my body and more importantly my breasts I would not be here today. I met an amazing man and we now have 3 very beautiful sons. Feel your boobies can be the difference between life and death. My favorite quote is by Mahatma Ghandi - "Be the change that you want to see in the world!"

"So be the change and feel your boobies, better yet, be the change and spread the word, save a sister, save a friend, feel your boobies, save a life."
