Solveig's Story

My name is Solveig and I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2013 at the age of 31. My daughter was two at the time of diagnoses. I underwent a double mastectomy with reconstruction right before Christmas that year and finished chemotherapy in 2014. I was in the military for many years, and going through cancer was by far a bigger challenge than boot camp and deployments! I was unsure if I could have anymore children, and was blessed with my son, born 6 months ago. I consider myself lucky to have an amazing family and the ability to connect with other survivors through support groups and organizations like Hope Chest!
