How We Got Here

As many of you already know, Emily was diagnosed with Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) several months ago following a routine mammogram. LCIS is an area of abnormal cell growth that increases a person's risk of developing invasive breast cancer later on in life.  After consulting with a host of medical specialists, Emily has opted for a bilateral mastectomy followed by reconstruction.  Although reaching this decision was difficult, Emily felt that this procedure gave her the best chance to live a cancer free life in the future.  Emily's surgery is scheduled to take place at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, June 13th.  Following a one night stay in the hospital, Emily will begin her recovery process at home.  Updates related to Emily's surgery and recovery process will be posted to this site.  You can also use the site to send Emily your thoughts and well wishes which she would truly appreciate.
