Slingerlands woman hopes story will encourage others to prioritize mammograms
Angie Graziano of Slingerlands is hoping her story will help encourage others to stay up to date on their mammograms.
She was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer on Feb. 3 – days before her 41st birthday.
Graziano felt fine physically. She didn’t suspect anything was wrong.
The cancer was found during a routine mammogram and ultrasound. However, Graziano’s quick to admit the checkup was 6 months later than it should have been.
Graziano underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy.
She’ll receive therapy for the next five years, all while hoping any future imaging comes back negative.
