(KPLR) – In Monday’s Afternoons on 11, Christine Buck talks with two breast cancer survivors and details their stories of survival.
Raylene Hollrah is an insurance agent and is a breast cancer survivor who opted for breast reconstruction, only later to contract another form of breast cancer from the breast implants used in her breast reconstruction surgery.
Our second breast cancer survivor was Beverly McKee who after finding out she had stage 3 breast cancer, opted for a bilateral mastectomy. Later she would find out that she was prone to develop breast cancer, as she was a carrier of the mutated BRCA 2 gene, that gave her an 84% chance of developing breast cancer, and 12% chance of recurrence.
