We talk to Kelly Iverson about what its like to have double Mastectomy At the age of 25 then rebuilt. How she maneuvers dating and much more..
We talked to the fabulous and very honest Kelly Iverson about her decision to have double mastectomy and her breast rebuilt after finding out she has the breast cancer gene and 87% chance of getting it. She talks about dating, mourning her breasts, getting irked when people talk about how great her breasts look now, without understanding she made a brave decision and having these three surgeries are not some easy things. It was major surgery. She tells us going to groups with women that have been through the same thing has helped her and also seeing a therapist. Yes, this was elective surgery but she knew her chance of getting breast cancer was huge. Her aunt and her grandmom had breast cancer as well. Kelly is lively and adorable and we loved her. Her Skype was not working so I called her. Fingers crossed I don't get a zillion dollar phone bill. HA!
Thanks so much to Kelly for bravely telling her story. There are many women in the same position, or will be. Her goal is to get the word out so women are aware. She's great and sultry..
Thanks most of all to our listeners. You are the best..
