Breast Reconstruction Blessings PRMA Plastic Surgery

I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Pamela today. She has been a nurse for 35 years now and wanted to share her breast reconstruction experience in the hopes of encouraging others interested in the DIEP flap.

I must tell you that Pamela is an exceptional woman! She exudes such a joyful presence and has a heart of pure gold. She will tell you that although she has experienced turmoil and tears through her breast cancer diagnosis and treatments, she still considers herself to be extremely blessed.

Thank you Pamela for sharing your story!
