Kyra Fetherston never thought she would be diagnosed with breast cancer at just 39-years-old. As she was under the age of 40, she hadn’t yet received a breast screen and when she first found a lump in her left breast, she debated for a week or so on if it was worth getting checked out.
“It took me a while to say this isn’t right. There is so much out there on what to look for, but the one tell that made me open my eyes was puckering of the skin on my breast. I knew this was a sign of breast cancer.”
After receiving a mammogram and biopsy on Christmas Eve of 2019, Kyra’s new year took a turn for the worst when just a week and a half later she was told she had breast cancer.
