Gildas Club-Metro Detroit's Fundraiser:

Teresa Stankoff

THE STORY:

I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer of my right breast at age 44 on August 26, 2006. One week later I had the first of five surgeries which was my mastectomy, followed by chemo, radiation, BRCA 1 diagnosis, hysterectomy, another mastectomy and finally reconstruction. I recently made the decision to have my implant removed from the radiated side due to extreme thinning of the skin and the implant coming out. It is like reliving this whole ordeal again. I thought I was done. The good news is that I don’t have cancer. I am one week out from surgery and learning to live with my “new normal”. I will eventually get a breast prosthetic which will accompany me to our next “Bras for a Cause” this year.

I have been married to Jeff for 20 years (4/30/14) and have two beautiful daughters, Amber, 19, and Angela, soon to be 17. I live each day with passion and gusto! Sometimes we will hit a bump in the road; I just hit mine, but I will overcome and be on the other side before you know it!! :)
