I am a 17 year survivor, I had breast cancer at 36, when my 4 children were small. It was devastatingly scary, but I had extensive surgery at UCSF (6 of them), and I am very healthy now! I have a lovely husband who was my rock, and who had to be the rock for his mother and grandmother 5 months later when they were both diagnosed with breast cancer. I am an artist, a designer, a feng shui practitioner, an esthetician, and whatever else strikes my fancy!
