In February of 2013, Brandi found a lump in her right breast. After a mammogram and ultrasound guided biopsy she underwent a lumpectomy– the mass was much larger than they had hoped. Over the next six months Brandi lost her hair, eyebrows and eye lashes. She went through chemo, radiation and a bilateral mastectomy as well as two additional surgeries after that. And she couldn’t have made it to the other side with her wife, Tonia.
