Terri is a two-time breast cancer survivor. Terri opened a Facebook group in June of 2015. One year later, in 2016, she opened the non-profit DiepC Foundation to educate and inform others about their options for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. This community includes breast cancer patients, both women and men, and those who carry various gene mutations that put them at high risk of getting breast cancer.
Terri’s Recommended Resources
I am an educator and advocate for all choices of Breast Reconstruction after a mastectomy. I will explain how I came to know about my reconstruction options, where I researched, who I talked to and how I came to the decision that I made to have DIEP flap (deep inferior epigastric perforator) reconstruction after a second cancer diagnosis followed by a double mastectomy in May of 2014.
