In March of 2017 I was diagnosed with stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma. My daughters were one and a half and four at the time. I had a bilateral mastectomy and four rounds of chemo. At Gilda’s Club I was able to take meditation and yoga classes to help with the fear and anxiety of having cancer. I was also able to find resources that I could use to help my children understand what was going on. I am two years cancer free and thriving!
