Well, what can I say, meeting Amy today was everything I could have ever imagined and more. She’d told me she had a big surprise for me, and boy was she right – I not only got to meet Amy, but the incredible Eryn as well. A fellow BRCA2+ 25 year old that just had her mastectomy and is mid-reconstruction. So we had the three major stages represented – pre-op, in the middle of it, and post op – how cool is that?! I can only hope that every person facing these decisions has an opportunity like this.
Being around these two ladies that truly “get it” was nothing short of inspiring and empowering. They reiterated all the thoughts that I have had about how can you just sit around not doing anything, and fighting for yourself. They are incredible examples of strength and courage, and I am so grateful for these new friendships and am so excited about the future for us all.
