The unending questions keep you up at night. Can I handle all of this deep down? Am I going to lose mobility in anyway after removing my breasts? Will I be able to exercise the same as before and how will it change? What is my body truly going to look like without breasts (and maybe nipples too)? Will there be any feeling left after they remove my nerve endings?
There is a little voice inside your head that won’t let you settle and your gut feeling is that you should be taking your life back by doing preventative surgery.
But, what’s more important – your breasts or the life ahead of you?
You don’t want to be diagnosed with cancer and you don’t want to lose your femininity. You have your whole life ahead of you, plus people and experiences that you value and love so much. There are people in your life that need you around to be healthy, vibrant, loving, nurturing, and alive for them. You wish you had some guidance.
Except you don’t have anyone in your life to talk to. You don’t want to be a burden to your friends, family, and loved ones with this major surgery. If only there were someone to turn to for support. Someone that has already been through their journey and can support you through yours.
“Laura is an invaluable resource for me to reach out to. She has helped on many levels to guide me up, over and down a difficult speed bump life has presented to me. Without her support this challenge would be a daunting journey. Hen I couldn’t wrap my head around it she brought things into focus. Forever I will be grateful.” -Kimberly Sandtner
You are in luck. I am here to stand by your side during every step of the process with you. Not only will I open my heart to you and guide you with my expertise and experience, but I will also comfort you as you move through your questions and fears.
I provide the guidance you need to emotionally, mentally and physically go through your testing and preventative surgery.
This is a program to prepare you for your journey carrying the BRCA gene mutation. I personally wish I had this program before my surgery. I would have given anything to have the support of someone who had already faced their process as I journeyed through mine.
While progressing through this experience, I will be guiding you through a transformation within yourself. I am a very open person and will be telling you exactly what will be happening and not sugar coat the operation. You will start to recognize what is truly important in life and how being proactive with your health will let you take your life back. You will learn that the patterns you were living before no longer serve you and will open up your eyes to a different view of life. You will start to love and learn more about your body than before and understand that you can be sexy with or without your breasts.
I feel sexier than I ever did before my Preventative double mastectomy. My new breasts have become a part of me that I am proud of which empower me as a women. I have been given the gift of taking my life back knowing I won’t be suffering like my Aunts, Grandfather and Mother that carried the BRCA1 gene mutation. Now I can share my experiences, courageous story, surgery details & mindset strategies with others to make their own journeys much easier while I can comfort them during the unknown.
