I am a breast cancer survivor and come October when the country goes pink, I am a survivor who is triggered. Complex PTSD is in full regalia as my senses are overloaded when the calendar turns a page and we fall into the pink abyss.

As a survivor, it is actually my experience with insurance coverage after my surgery that is the anchor of my emotional and psychological undoing.

I have navigated and weathered many a storm along that journey. Although I do not know the specifics of other state or country regulations regarding access and coverage for lymphedema post-mastectomy surgery, I hope the knowledge I do have can inspire others to not give up on their own journeys.
