Meet Nadia – Stage 2b, California

26 year old with triple negative breast cancer

My name is Nadia

And I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer stage 2b at the age of 26

I’m BRCA1 positive and breast cancer runs in my family, my grandmother passed from breast cancer about 60 years ago, my aunt had it at age 50 and my cousin had it at age 40.

I always knew I had to be careful with breast cancer because it ran in my family, but I never thought I’d be diagnosed with it at such a young age.

The way I discovered my lumps were a blessing in disguise, and I am grateful for catching it early on. It is essential to know your body and to take action when you feel something different. Definitely following your instinct is crucial and can be life saving.
