The Physical and Mental Toll of Breast Cancer: Part 1

All Podcasts

Do I need to have my breast removed? Will I lose them both? What about my nipples – will I get to keep them? How long before I can get reconstruction? Will I ever feel the same again? The unknowns women face after getting a breast cancer diagnosis are staggering. Our Season 2 premiere launches into the physical and emotional toll that breast cancer survivors endure. The experience and honesty they share took two whole episodes to convey. In Part 1, survivors Melanie and Tamara open up about their mastectomies, the challenges they were prepared for and the impact(s) they didn’t expect.
