My name is Allie! In June of 2013 my mom and I both tested positive for a BRCA2 mutation. I recently underwent a preventative mastectomy and am in the reconstruction process. My mom is going to begin her journey soon. My hope for this blog is to keep my friends and family informed about my progress but more importantly I hope that you share my story with others. I hope to inspire you to take care of your body and be aware of what is going on. I truly believe that I am meant to have this mutation so I can inspire others to be proactive and take care of their bodies. Please e-mail me or leave a comment if you have any questions or would like to ask more personal questions. I want to be a resource for other women who are going through a similar experience.
