Kimberly Bowles was 35 years old and had 2 young children- ages 3 and 10 months, when she was diagnosed with Stage 3A breast cancer at the end of 2016. Kimberly joined us on the podcast today to share her journey with breast cancer. Kimberly had the standard course of screenings and diagnostic testing, despite the fact that her OBGyn had told her that she had a clogged duct. Her cancer was found to be HER2+. She underwent chemotherapy, double mastectomy, and radiation, and is currently on Tamoxifen and Nerlynx. Kimberly shared her devastating experience with a plastic surgeon who denied her decision to go flat and how this pushed her into the world of advocacy to help protect other's from having their decisions violated. Thanks for sharing your story with us, Kim!
