My name is Charley and I’m 26, I had a preventative double mastectomy on the 24th July 2015.  I have created this blog as I recover, like a diary. I hope it comes in useful to many other women in a similar position.

This is my journey.

  1. Thank you for sharing your journey so far, you are very brave. My twin and I are just starting the process of finding out if we carry the BRCA2 gene after losing our mum to breast cancer when we were 11 years old. We are the same age as you so your blog has been really helpful and has given me an insight into things to come. thank you, take care xxx
