Tammy Graves Miller’s Story

“I am a 37 year old breast cancer survivor, member of The Many Faces of Breast Cancer teams. I was diagnosed with brast cancer at age 33. I believe my fertility treatments played a role in my breast cancer along with a family history of breast cancer and cancer. I have BRCA2, the genetic breast cancer gene.”

“I celebrate each day because of my husband Ryan who has helped me through the sorrows, joys, and dissappointments in life. He is my real supporter. My three children, Alayna, Michael and Collin were very much a part of my healing.”

“I would say, know your family cancer history and risk factors. You may not be able to change the risk factors but you can cn be more aware. For all women grouped together in every age, 1 out of 8 women will get breast cancer. 1 in 229 women ages 30 to 39 will get breast cancer in the next 10 years. Young women do get breast cancer, expecially if there is a family history.”
