<p>Christmas 2005 I learned I had breast cancer for the second time, and for the second time my life was spared because of early detection.&nbsp; Even though I lost both breasts and endured 18 months of hell, I emerged healthier in body and spirit, and now I gladly devote myself to supporting people whose lives have been touched my breast cancer.&nbsp; I love to hear from women all over the country who are facing or recovering from some stage of treatment.&nbsp; I am particularly interested in reconstructive surgery since I had the latest and best DIEP flap procedure and have a flat tummy to show for it.&nbsp; I am a DIEP sister and will sign off with my motto</p> <p>I am alive&hellip;and I have cleavage!</p> &lt;!--Session data--> <div>&nbsp;</div>
