Join host, Dr. Eleonora Teplinsky, as she speaks with Rachel Peterson. Rachel was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer at 27 and made the decision to forego breast reconstruction when she had a bilateral mastectomy and to go flat. On this episode, Rachel speaks a lot about why and how she made the decision and what advice she has for others. We also discuss body image after breast surgery, dating after cancer, how words & language matter (be curious and not judgmental!) and the importance of mental health.
