    Gone through the same journey and it is not easy removing both breast at age of 27 was not easy for me, this video was much needed now a days we glamorize brest cancer, people need to see this image to take it seriously, financially mentally physically it is difficult.

    Huge respect, speaks about her loads of strength to live life, struggle and move forward. God bless her with strength of mind, body and spirit to move forward. Admired her fighting spirit and her mind to help others too instead of withdrawing back. A big lesson to everyone. Stay blessed.

    As a man who lost his wife to breast cancer this short video is not only educational, but enlightening and helping to dispel some of the myths and misinformation circulating. To those that feel such as this should not be posted.... don't watch it, shove your head in the sand and hope you never have to experience such. To those in the video.... RESPECT in huge amounts.
