Welcome to the Breast Cancer MyStory. My name is Britta Wilk McKenna and I was diagnosed with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ) on December 30, 2010. Since then I’ve undergone four surgeries, with Stage 2 reconstruction completed on November 18, 2011, nipple construction on February 1, 2012 and finished with my nipple/areola tattoo on April 21, 2012. I launched this site in an effort to share the information I wish I had when I was diagnosed. To read my story, check the “Introduction” tab at the top of this site or visit www.dcismystory.com for complete information about ductal carcinoma in situ or DCIS.
The mission of Breast Cancer MyStory is to be an online companion and source of relevant information for all those affected by breast cancer. We are guided by a passionate board of directors and the purpose of our mission. As part of a new and expanded focus, specific types of breast cancer as outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO Classification of Tumours, Volume 4) are featured on the site. Each type of breast cancer has its own page with information. If you have other ideas of what should be included on the site, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This site is meant for breast cancer survivors – to provide a safe place to land online where you’ll find stories of hope and inspiration from other breast cancer survivors. It is also for those that love and care for us to help you gain insight, information and resources. Please share this site with those you think may benefit to help us build a community of support for breast cancer.
The tabs along the top of this website each have sub pages under them, so scroll over them to see the many pages of information available.
Thank you for stopping by; I wish my fellow travelers “enlightened trails” during your journey with breast cancer. Please share your thoughts by commenting on pages or drop me an email offline at email@example.com to share your story. Together we can build a community of support for all those affected by breast cancer.
