My new life as 1 in 8

At 27 years old, I found myself surrounded by my family on the 14th floor of a hospital in Chicago. I have breast cancer. Stage three. Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, as my surgeon would explain. It had only been two weeks since my diagnoses, and we were waiting, anxiously, for the surgeon to better explain my options for treatment. The surgeon entered, sat calmly, and said something I will never forget: “Abby, your diagnosis is uncommon at your age, but 1 in 8 women are at risk of developing breast cancer at some point in their lifetime.”
