More from Megan
What is some advice you’d share with women who are facing a similar decision?
- Whatever decision you make regarding getting genetic testing or surgery, is the right decision. Don’t for one second guess yourself. You are an intelligent young woman who can through anything that comes her way.
- I wish the word “should” was eliminated from language. This is a very personal decision, so while making the decision, don’t let anyone bully you with “shoulds.”
- My future sister-in-law got me this beautiful wall art for my birthday a year after my surgery, and it has fantastic words of wisdom I think every woman could live by: “Life is tough, my darling, but so are you.” I look at it every morning to start my day.
