De An

My name is De An, I’m 48 years old have been divorced for 23 years. I have a 25 year old son named BreKen.

I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2011 and subsequently had a double mastectomy on 11-11-11. I also received chemo infusions in Denver every 21 days, endured 5 surgeries and a blood transfusion, all in just one year. This proved to be quite difficult, as I live in Pueblo and would commute for medical care and treatments.
