BRCA - 3 Part Series

The more information I have been sharing about my surgery and my BRCA+ status I have been meeting more and more women who are facing similar struggles.


My blog was actually never intended to be a platform for BRCA or breast cancer, but this struggle has obviously become a prominent fixture as my life unfolded this past year. I have spent a lot of time sharing my battle to achieve a healthy balance. And I obviously still spend the majority of my posts focusing on fitness, wellness, diet, and running.

But sharing my own experience - the whole process (physically and mentally), information, and education was why I chose to blog so openly about everything. So I wanted to spend some time this week addressing some of the questions from my BRCA+ friends and talking more specifically about this part of the journey. So I am doing a 3 part series to address some of the questions I have been asked and to share some of the information I wish I had while I was going through the process...

  1. Surgery Type and Exceptions
  2. My BRCA Timeline
  3. Recovery Thoughts and Feelings
While I know I am still recovering - it has only been 3 weeks - I do feel like I made it through the toughest part. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I know I am getting there. But it took a L.O.N.G time to get to this point, so I dedicating these posts all those brave women facing cancer and BRCA. I hope this series brings you comfort and more than anything else HOPE!

Love your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
