“Take it one step at a time. Get your team together. That includes your friends, family — who is going to be there.”
Amanda Blauvelt is a hairstylist who was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at age of 32. She had chemotherapy, surgery and radiation and she thought she was in the clear until she was diagnosed with a second triple negative breast cancer. She talks about her experience with treatment the second time around, how she is thriving through chemotherapy, and her diagnosis of a BRCA gene mutation. She also shares some really helpful expert advice about how to take care of your scalp once hair falls out during chemotherapy.
