Vera: My Story of Breast Cancer and Reconstruction

Vera shares her story of breast reconstruction

When I learned my daughter was getting married, one of the happiest days of a mother’s life, I also received one of the most devastating news; I had breast cancer.

They told me this was a positive conversation as it was found early.  I had to have both breasts removed, and I would be cancer-free.

Dr. Alexander removed everything from the bottom to the top; not a pleasant thing and a rough year healing.  Would I do this again?  You bet your life I would.  Dr. Alexander made it possible for me to look into the mirror being as whole as I have ever been.

If it were not for the early detection with the mammogram I would not have found the cancer in time, and it would have not been the happy ending and thanks to Dr. Alexander for making me whole again.
