After a long day of shoots... an expansion appointment ain’t gonna slow this train down. Ran three miles, 200 squats, 200 sit-ups, and a lil arm action 👀🥰😱🤷🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ Hi, doc! I felt great... don’t be mad at me! #breastcancerwarrior #strongwomen #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #aerialistonthemend #breastcancerfighter #dancerstrongerthancancer
A) I want that light! B) ⚠️ FOOB UPDATE ⚠️ ➡️ I’m now 6 months post nipple/skin sparing double-mastectomy with direct-to-implant reconstruction, under muscle. Smooth, round, silicone, 560cc? (my sister and bestie know 🤣🙈) I’m healing well, (had a dodgy nipple at the start) and I’ve been using some scar therapy, but not religiously as my skin has been sensitive to the scar patches. I see plastics again in March and may put some fat grafting on my radar. I have some rippling depending what position I’m in. I’m long-since back to working out (when I have the energy). I’m doing most things without limitations, some modifications, as the pec situation feels weird. I’m hoping to get in to a regular gym/yoga routine 🧘‍♀️ , but man, I’m exhausted! I still have VERY little feeling, but I am gaining some in the periphery. I can’t stand these ?phantom ?internal un-scratch-able itches! I’m still not perfectly comfortable side-sleeping yet, but I’m getting there! Any other questions anyone has about foobs/surgery? #doublemastectomy #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #foobs #breastcancer #cancer #brca #brca1 #portacath #byeport #bald #chemotherapy #breasties #brcastrong #warrior #fighter #surgery

A full day that started with a meeting and three media interviews. Kept my mind off of my reconstruction appointment. I’m always nervous right before. As soon as I get this done I’m back to working and getting things done. I feel like myself... pitching, producing, filming, working, writing, living. Just a lil treatment with the doc in between. #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerfighter
First time since my mastectomy in October that I’ve felt comfortable enough to try to wear jeans (and not leggings) and a T-shirt that is somewhat tight and not really lose. I have so many band T-shirt’s I haven’t worn. I still don’t know if I’m comfortable rn, but here I am trying. My body feels bloated in my abdomen and misshapen and very weird and I feel super self conscious about everything. Doctors keep telling me to not get used to my body because there’s a lot more change to come. My body is still changing and recovering from radiation, and I have more reconstructive surgeries this summer. Sporting my Trunks and Tales T-shirt (@fugodie ) and Dinosaur Jr hoodie. #danisprettyshittytittycommittee #diepflapreconstruction #diepflap #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #doublemastectomy #cancersucks #breastcancersucks #breastcancer #youngbreastcancer

When it’s your birthday week and it’s a snow storm and you’re feeling yourself. 💁🏼‍♀️ I have so much positivity coursing through me right now, and so many exciting things filling my life with joy. This is my year. I’m thankful for 33 but can’t wait for 34. ✨ // Did some reflecting on my last year over at stayingmartha.com (head to my bio for a direct link) 😘
Found this video I took right before my #doublemastectomy surgery. My mama was braiding my hair for me. I call this putting on your brave face cause you don’t want your loved ones to see you cry. You hold your breath and stifle your tears. I know you can relate. She was telling me about how much she loves me and how she cried asking to save me and make everything ok. No matter what language... the feelings of #hope #love #family are universal. So I dedicate this one to all the caregivers out there. Thank you for being there. #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #aerialistonthemend
Exactly a month ago today I was waking up from the hardest, my only and yet best surgery of my life. It’s crazy how amazing my recovery has been and I’m just so grateful to God because only He could have healed me as fast as He has. No one can believe how quickly I have recovered. Drains were out ahead of time. They said minimum 2-3 weeks and they were out in 11 days! Back to workouts ahead of time. They said 6 weeks and back in 2! Teaching way ahead of time. They said 6-8 weeks and back in 2 1/2 I woke up this morning beyond thankful. I know my nutrition and health had so much to do with it but to God be the Glory! #mindsetreset #transformation #togodbetheglory #brcastrong #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #doublemastectomy #breastcancerawareness #prevention
When the end of the night draws in and we do the usual shoulder massages before bed ! This is a common family theme anywhere we go 😂 This time I actually got to be the person that doesn't have to massage anyone ( mainly because I couldn't get off the floor 😂) and my god little Alyssa did an amazing job at getting rid of the tension I've been really suffering with since my surgery !

I was really self conscious in this swimsuit. Not because of my love handles or stomach that’s carried 2 babies, but because of my scars. ⠀ ⠀ I am a BRCA1 breast cancer gene carrier. ⠀ I had a prophylactic mastectomy - which is a fancy way of saying I chose to remove my breasts and have reconstructive surgery to reduce my high risk of breast cancer. ⠀ ⠀ I have scars. I have scars on my chest and my arm pits from the surgeries. The first time I put on a bikini I asked my friend if she could see the scars. She said you could but who cares? ⠀ I cared. People will see them and think I had a botched boob job. She laughed and said something so profound. . .⠀ ⠀ No one is looking close enough to see them. You should be proud of those scars. Those scars make you a badass. You made a decision that saved your life. ⠀ ⠀ 𝒲𝑒 𝒶𝓁𝓁 𝒽𝒶𝓋𝑒 𝓈𝒸𝒶𝓇𝓈. 𝒲𝑒𝒶𝓇 𝓉𝒽𝑜𝓈𝑒 𝓈𝒸𝒶𝓇𝓈 𝓅𝓇𝑜𝓊𝒹𝓁𝓎. 𝒯𝒽𝑒𝓎 𝒶𝓇𝑒 𝓅𝒶𝓇𝓉 𝑜𝒻 𝓎𝑜𝓊𝓇 𝓈𝓉𝑜𝓇𝓎. 🥂 ⠀ ⠀ 👉🏻 I shared my story in detail on #IGTV .

After a year of follow-ups, biopsies, etc., I was diagnosed with #DCIS #breastcancer in October 2018 at the hospital I am so very proud to work for, @rushmedical...19 days before my birthday. I work as a media relations professional and producer who is always asking others to share their personal stories. For the first time, I am stepping out from behind the camera to share my struggles, fears, hopes and outcomes. Please join me on my #cancerjourney as a #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomydiva .

Boobavesery i dag🙌🏻😊🙌🏻 det er ikke til at forstå at det i dag er 1 år siden jeg tog en kæmpe beslutning om at få fjernet begge mine bryster og få rekonstrueret dem i samme operation. Det gjorde jeg for at slippe for at have frygten for brystkræft hængende over hovedet efter ikke så fantastiske odds fra lægerne på baggrund af familiehistorik. Jeg var ikke et øjeblik i tvivl om min beslutning dengang og jeg har ikke fortrudt den en eneste dag efter, men jeg ville lyve hvis jeg sagde det har været nemt. Det gjorde mere ondt i dagene efter end jeg nogensinde havde drømt om og tog længere tid at hele og føle sig en smule normal igen. Min mand, familie og venner var en kæmpe støtte og trak et stort læs det første lange stykke tid, hvor jeg intet kunne. Det tog mange måneder men pludselig en dag stod jeg op til en dag der kunne klares uden smertestillende og siden da er tiden gået stærkt. Jeg er dog ikke i mål endnu og afventer stadig den sidste del af rekonstruktionen og kæmper med hver dag at vende mig til mit spejlbillede, men jeg er glad og stolt af min beslutning🙌🏻✌🏻💪🏻 #boobaversery #markering #minkrop #mitvalg #bekæmpbrystkræft #fuckcancer #primærrekonstruktion #strattice #præventivbrystkirurgi #dobbeltmastektomi #medrekonstruktion #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #fightbreastcancer #myrecovery
Almost 8-weeks post op. Felt ok to run on the treadmill so whipped out 4-miles, squats, lunges, legs, abs and everything lower body I could think of. Afterwards decided to celebrate with a lil freestyle. I really miss pole and aerial. I miss doing handstands. I especially miss my #aerialfamily at @stilettodance #doingmybreast #breastcancerwarrior #breastcancerfighter #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #strongwomen #dancerfightingcancer #strongerthancancer #poledancersofig #aerialistonthemend #breastcancerawareness #
Monday morning vibe at the gym. Trying to stick to 2019 intentions of my three R’s. Recover the mind, body and soul after #doublemastectomywithreconstruction Rediscover the muscles and the mental attitude of you can, you will after 3 surgeries! Reflect on new beginnings in the gym and leaving the old routines behind. Had fun listening to music 🎼 from @john_carey_music This was the prefect song for increasing the intensity on the elliptical. #enjoythejourney #trustyourjourney #gymtime 💪

Got bad news that my cancer mentor has to undergo surgery again and radiation this time. She just finished out her surgeries and treatments. She is so strong and positive because we have to be. What other choice do we have? I am devastated and lost my sh*t in the middle of a sandwich shop. I left my food order, cried in my car and punched out my dashboard. I’ve known for a while what was coming and was waiting for her to finally tell me. I had hoped for the best but was wronged by cancer again. I put on my brave face and called her. She said she didn’t want to tell me because she didn’t want me to worry about my cancer coming back. What a selfless thought. She is amazing. Through all of the crap she is going through, she thinks of me. I told her that right now all I am focused on is how I can help. I’ve learned from my pole and aerial family @stilettodance #stilettoarmy that the collective “we” is way stronger than just me. With that, #cancer ... I am giving you a BIG 🖕🏼! I am honored to be part of my cancer mentor’s ancillary support team. #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #strongwomen #breastcancersucks #breastcancerfighters #foobs #doingmybreast
Post-mastectomy bra shopping at @Nordstrom today was a little emotional and awkward for me. Thankfully an angel named Maureen fitted and hooked me up...literally and figuratively. #breastcancerawareness #thisisbreastcancer #doublemastectomy #doublemastectomywithreconstruction
First expansion appointment since I returned to work after my double mastectomy. Can’t lie, I’m a bit nervous. The treatment hurts and is uncomfortable but my reconstructive surgeon, physician assistant and the team always makes me feel better and gets me through them. Here’s to continuing building Deb 2.0. The operating system upgrade continues. #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #strongwomen #breastcancerwarrior

. 💉 HOW HAVE 4 WEEKS GONE BY ALREADY!? 💉 . I wish I could go back and tell myself not to worry and just say GIIIRLLL YOU'VE GOT THIS, 🙋🏻 that it's no where near as bad as you think its going to be! Ok, I can't get a cup out of the cupboard yet, I can't fully dress myself on my own and my new Foobs are strangely numb. But that will all get better in time. My mind feels so clear now, I've had an incredible risk reducing surgery which gives me a chance to live a life without breast cancer, so that I don't have to leave this earth earlier than my genes may have wanted me to. I will have these kick ass scars to prove it and will always hold these last 4 weeks worth of memories close to me because they haven't been anything like I thought they would be. They haven't been traumatic ( ok maybe the constipation was... that was horrific 😂) but everything else has been a new experience that I wouldn't call bad. Having a positive mind will help you through anything. Being around positive influences and understanding there is always someone going through a tougher time than you out there. I have been touched by all of the ladies that have contacted me through Instagram asking for advice and support. Even more surprising was how many of you @slimmingworld ladies have contacted me with concerns about your family history with breast cancer. I started this blog to give an honest account of my experience and that's what it has been, totally honest and i'll continue for anyone that wants to hear. It's all about supporting each other through experiences in our lives we didn't expect to go through ! 4 weeks ago I became a PREVIVOR and I am so bloody proud of myself for it 💪🏼 . . . #brca #brca1 #brca2 #brca2positive #breastcancerawareness #positivevibes #breasties #previvor #foobs #breastfriends #riskreducingmastectomy #brcauk #breastcancersucks #sw #swuk #slimmingworld #thisgirlcan #proud #newme #swinsta #breastcancer #saynotobreastcancer #riskreducingsurgery #healthyliving #hospital #doublemastectomy #doublemastectomywithreconstruction
Yep. I’m happy to report that I’ve now successfully memorized the human leg venous system. I’m practically google. Ahem, anyway back at the hospital again to have this alleged seroma checked out. As it turns out, it isn’t a seroma at all. It’s just the implant folding and rippling. Perfectly normal. I was told that as the swelling reduces and the scar tissue breaks down, the implant softens up and starts to ripple and fold. One of the reasons fat grafting is suggested - to smooth out these imperfections. I was on the fence about having any fat grafting done, but now that one of the ripples gives the illusion of a third nipple on Righty, I’m leaning towards having the grafting done. Next appointment is in July and I’m sure things will change by then. But for now I’ll be keeping my rippled third nipple (photo of this in my previous post when I thought it was a seroma). #50 %morenipple #siliconeimplants #preventativemedicine #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #smallboobsbigproblems #fuckcancer

Getting back on the #bike tonight for my first easy spin 3 weeks post #doublemastectomywithreconstruction surgery. In for 20miles, one hour and 6mins. Not allowed to sweat yet. Can't wait for more!
I believe dance is the cheapest and best medicine. Seeing if I still got it. Seven weeks post operation. As @wolfjames says... Never be afraid of the shit that you’ve gone through. Don’t underestimate your ability to push through. This song has been my anthem through all my surgeries, treatments and doctor appointments the last two years.

First transform 20 workout with @shaunt is done! I pretty much modified everything! No arms above my shoulder, no push ups or planks. Gotta start somewhere right?? Whether you are just starting to workout or just getting back into it the most important thing is to just START!!! Get through it, even if you have to modify. Just MOVE! #16dayspostop #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #startsomewhere #starttodaynottomorrow #strongerthanyesterday #cantstopwontstop

So, a few people have asked me why I would choose surgery when I’m currently healthy. How have other #previvors tackled this question? I for one know there are many reasons, number one being I don’t think my heart could handle even one more abnormal mammogram. But curious to know the thoughts of others! #brca #brca1positive #brca1carrier #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #previvor
So I promised my colleague and friend I would not do the most.... so yeah, Nikki... 😅😅😅😅😅... I only tested the waters to see where I am at. Shoulder stands on the left side only.

The struggle is real. The reward is worth it. Got to raise my arms above my head for the first time in six weeks! It was not easy and my mobility is definitely not there yet but getting it back slowly. No handstands, shoulder stands or dolphins just yet. Just a reminder to stay motivated, stay strong and be gentle and kind to yourself. I hope to be back on the pole and Lyra soon. #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #breastcancerwarrior #stilettoarmy #stilettoarmystrong
When yo bestie says let’s VIP and watch our friend Michael Serafini spin like the good ole times. Feels like the old club kid days... when we were at Medusa’s and before I was working bottle service as my 10th PT job at Crobar, Tsunami and Le Passage during and right after college along with my real job. No booze and no dancing... still on restrictions #oldskool #flashback #timeflies #doublemastectomydiva #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomywithreconstruction
At work early this AM... got the OK to go back to work with restrictions today! So great to be back in my office and WORKING! My doc did not want me to go back until after Jan. 2, but I pestered her enough to get the ok. BTW, duck lips ain’t gangsta. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #sogoodtobeatworktoday #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction Song by Eminem
2018 has definitely been a very unique year with a lot of ups and downs in this journey called life. Someone gave me this passage 30 years ago after my 4th miscarriage. This passage has been a life line for me through the most difficult times and the easiest of times especially 2018. #doublemastectomywithreconstruction ; #second #breastcancer diagnosis; #myleoproliferativeneoplasms diagnosis; great trip to #scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 visiting & 🏌🏼‍♀️ #england 🇬🇧 🚴🏼‍♀️ in #ysctourdepink and spending time with family and friends. The common thread during both the ups and downs is H O P E. For me, H O P E can be broken down with these 4 words: • H = Happen or Humble - Things Happen in your life that you can not control. Try to just get through these with small steps. When you look back on these small steps, you may be humbled by the experience you just came through. • O = Open - Try to always have an Open mind in every situation in your life regardless of your own personal beliefs or past experiences good or bad. Not saying there won’t be moments were this seems impossible. • P Preservation & Patience - My grandmother always used to say...”Patience is a virtue.” This was the most difficult part for me this year since I live very active lifestyle. Multiple surgeries sometimes made this difficult especially when you have surgical restrictions. However, in the grand scheme of life, these were minor forks in the road. • E = Expectations or Experiences - Sometimes you have to let go of expectations or past experiences and simply just look at each step you take forward or backwards, means you are still moving forward. Past experiences are sometimes hard to let go of & definitely can hold you back. 2019 is hours away and this lass is ready for a new year full of HOPE for a full Recovery (post surgeries); year of Reflection on were I have been and were I am headed and a year Rediscovering and #enjoythejourney Happy New Year to all! 📷taken in 2016 after hiking up the Cathedral Rock trail in Sedona

You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice - Bob Marley. Today is the final day in October, which is breast cancer awareness month. October 1, was when I was officially diagnosed... 19 days before my birthday. Support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken and never give up hope. Let my fight for survival be an example of why early detection, screening and genetic testing are so important. #breastcancerawarenessmonth #poledancersofIG #stilettoarmy #livingwithcancerandwinning Photo by @donqphotography #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #doublemastectomydiva #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #strongwomen
There’s no turning back. My decision has been made. To cry. I could sit around screaming to myself and questioning why the hell did my life had come to be this. What the hell did I do so wrong or why did it have to be me!!!! There are far more people out there that want to end their lives with giving up, smoking, taking cracks, or doing worst more than anything that the Devil himself would do. WHY ME!!! I’ve done nothing but live out my life without risk. I stay away from danger, its spotlight, yet dramas follow me every where I go. I can’t catch a breath! In a span of my 44 years of life, I’ve faced war, losses, failures, disappointments, and broken trusts. All from my undoing and I try hard to steer clear of that same path. But, NO, the Universe think that I am so strong to face this battle. I’m so enrage, angry, hurt, frustrated, and above all hate every facet of my existence right now. So twisted. So unfair. So not my happy self. I cry and I let my tear built up inside so long falls. As I wiped them away I feel such overwhelming urge to scream and I don’t know how to because I’m so exhausted from everything. And I lifted my hands up and I pray...for nothing but peace to find myself again. #breastcancerawareness #breastcancersurvivor #doublemastectomywithreconstruction #1 -15-2018diagnose
