Hello. My name is Lianne and I am a carrier of the BRCA2 mutation. This mutation greatly increases my risk of getting breast cancer... upto 87%.

In stead of living with that risk I have decided to go ahead and have a PBM. A Prophylactic Bylateral Mastectomy... aka.. prevenative removal of both breasts. I will begin reconstruction at the same time that the mastectomy is done.

I am going to try to keep a photo journal as well as a written journal of my healing process.. When doing my research this type of thing would have very much helped me in my decision making.

Please feel free to contact me.
