Your Story

Hello my name is Nabega Nankema and I am 17 years old. I just got told I have breast cancer less than two weeks ago. I found a lump on my left breast about a year ago and I was just too scared to go get it checked out. Then I started getting chest pains and all so I decided to go see my doctor. I first asked if I had cancer and she said there's very little chance that someone my age would it. Well they did a lot of tests and found out I did. I thought and still thinking that my life is over. All I ever wanted was to live a normal life without worrying I am going to die. I just want to graduate high school, go to college, have kids then die. I am very insecure about my breasts now. The doctors said they'll take care of it that I won't die but it still worries me. I guess I just need someone who understands to talk too so that's why I am here.
