Breast Cancer Guide for African American Women

Breast Cancer Guide by Cee is based on my experience with breast cancer. This is not medical advice. The goal of this guide is to give you an idea of getting screened and treated for breast cancer. You should also understand when reading the guide that the process may be different depending on your personal situation. If you would like to ask me any questions, please contact me

When I was diagnosed at 38 years old, I hardly knew anything about breast cancer. The only thing I knew about breast cancer were the breast cancer walks I’d see on the local News channels. Like many younger women, I did not know that I was old enough to have breast cancer. To me, breast cancer was an old lady disease. You can read more of my story here.

I wrote this guide to help you understand the process and costs associated with breast cancer, as well as to share with you what I learned from getting breast reconstruction surgery.
