Pink + Prepared = Power
My name is Amber and I am a breast and gastric cancer survivor. During my first routine mammogram, a spot was found that was stage 0 DCIS. After two lumpectomies and 8 doctors later, I found Dr. Kristi. I read her book and knew I had to fly out and meet her. I knew within 5 minutes of our first appointment, that she was my doctor. During that same appointment, we did genetic testing that reviled that I had an extremely rare gene, CDH1, which is associated with hereditary diffused gastric cancer. The gene is also linked to breast cancer. In March of 2020, I had a nipple sparing mastectomy. August was my reconstruction (implants were considered elective during Covid), and in December I had my entire stomach removed. Dr.Kristi saved my life! I would have not discovered that I had the gene if not for her. I was not having a single stomach issue and the previous doctors told me that we would get to the genetic test down the road. When they removed my stomach, I had 3 tumors that had not shown up in pre surgery scopes. Never a dose of chemo or radiation. Today I am cancer free and wanting to help others in their journey. I own a Commercial Real Estate Company in Hot Springs, AR. I enjoy spending time with my best friend and partner, Bob, our 5 month old Aussie Doodle, Tucker, and my family and friends. I am focused on prayer, me time, clean eating, traveling, and living life. My goal is to get involved and help others know their options.
