Breast Cancer Survivor Deidra’s Journey with Cancer – Center for Restorative Breast Surgery
The Center for Restorative Breast Surgery takes a closer look into the life of former patient and breast cancer survivor, Deidra. When diagnosed with breast cancer, Deidra, 57, had already been treated for melanoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After everything she’d been through, Deidra immediately knew that she wanted to do everything possible to reduce the risk of the breast cancer returning. She decided to undergo a double mastectomy with DIEP flap reconstruction, nipple reconstruction, and 3D tattooing. In this video, Deidra talks about processing her feelings about cancer—and healing in time to dance at her son’s wedding.
