Beth Jorgensen never fell victim to breast cancer.
At 26, I didn't have the perfect life. I wasn't married, I didn't have the perfect job, I didn't own a house and my life certainly wasn't what most people would call "stable."
In March 2001 I felt a lump on the upper portion of my right breast. Being almost 27 at the time I really didn't think much of it.
It, my lump, was found in early 2010 when I was weaning my 4 month old son from the breast.
No one in my family has ever had BC, so I didn't have a "family history", and therefore I assumed I didn't have anything to worry about.
I had just turned 20, and my husband and I just had our 2nd little boy. If it wasn't for him I would have never thought to check myself. After my doctor told me that I had cancer, all I could think about was living for my children, so I told him to remove both breasts.
