When Lena Magilton elected to have a bilateral mastectomy due to a strong family history of breast cancer, she was expecting to have one surgery and a three-day stay in the hospital. However, things quickly spiraled out of control with the final result being an eight-day stay in the hospital with three surgeries, three blood transfusions and an actual breast cancer diagnosis.
Since going through all of this back in December of 2015, Magilton has had two additional reconstructive surgeries. She says she learning to live with her new body every day.
While everything she has gone through may seem like an awful lot, Magilton has the best motivation to get through it all…..she is a mother.
Let’s celebrate Lena Magilton!
