I learned the name of each woman at the table and in a nut shell their story with Brca or further on to Cancer. At times I wanted to cry. Yet these women are still here. Because they stayed pro-active and informed of their situation of Brca. It saved their lives. I am inspired even more to stay as on top of this Brca thing for myself as I can be. I am thankful for God's timing. The year I had the test was 2009. At the time the insurance we had covered the $3000.00 dollar genetics test. So now I know.
I got lots of doctor's name from these knowledgeable ladies. I learned of tests I should have done for what they call "surveillance" to stay on top of it. I really do feel more empowered after going & learning & seeing their strength & wisdom. That's what Force is all about!
I can't wait for the next meeting! Meanwhile I am making doctors calls. It was refreshing to finally be in a room of women who are like me because since my test in 2009 I had not met face to face with any one else who has Brca positive. This really helped me to finally put all of this into perspective and get busy cause I have a lot of life left in me & a lot of things I wanna do in this life and I refuse to let cancer ever stand in the way!
