Personal Story: Julie Gazin

Posted:

My breast cancer was diagnosed through a routine mammogram. The mammogram showed something that the doctors wanted a closer look at. I didn't think it was anything serious so they said to have a biopsy now or in six months.  Because I was going through a divorce, which came about a couple of weeks earlier, I was afraid I wouldn't have health insurance so I decided to just get it over with right away. It turned out to be cancer, very early stages, and I had to have a mastectomy to remove the cancer. 


I was 43-years-old and the mother of three kids, ages 10-16. I was living in Texas, 1,600 miles away from my family in Wisconsin...it was a very, very difficult and scary time. My mother and sister flew down to spend two weeks with me as I went through the surgery, reconstruction, and recovery. I am now 14 years cancer-FREE!
