Hello my name is Caroline I’m a BRCA PREVIVOR

Hello everyone!! 

Back for year #2, and so much has happened in my journey I would like to share in hopes it can help someone else. I was diagnosed with the BRCA2 gene in June of 2019 I choose it would be best for me to have a bilateral prophylactic skin sparing mastectomy followed by reconstruction on Dec. 16, 2019. Recovery was tough for me and I had necrotic skin and weeping from my incisions that compromised my expanders(placed to stretch muscle and skin before implant) so I under went surgery #2 Jan. 10, 2020. For a short while they improved and I was on the road to being able to do simple everyday things and began physical therapy. Than things changed over night and I began to get red irritated and swollen. I had an abundance’s of serous fluid build up(bodies inflammation response) and for a week a small incision was made on my breast, and I was to drain it everyday and than repack it. My breast did not improve and I just came to terms my body was rejecting the expanders and I had them removed March 31, 2020. Fast forward to today I’m finally feeling good again and have my full range of motion back. Although not what I planned, it has help me appreciate the little things in life. Not only things but the people who helped take care of me, helped with my children, give me rides, and any support because Lord knows I couldn’t have gotten through this without them I would like thank my family, my daughters, fiancé, closest friends, and co-workers! Of course the amazing health care workings who took care of me as well! Not all those are as fortunate as me that’s why I love to participate and help those in our very own community going through some of the hardest times in there life! Last year I surpassed my goal of $300 and ended with over $500! I thank all those who donated and became apart of the team I'm truly great ful! This years goal is $500 for a great cause so please join or donate!! No worries I can send details for our walk/run will be different this year with covid but still a fun way while social distancing. More details to come!! Thank you in advance can’t wait!!
