That’s how old Michelle Fernandez was when she was told she had stage-three breast cancer.

“The first thing she said to me was, ‘I’m sorry,’ ” Fernandez said of the call from a nurse. “Right when she said that, I knew. I was speechless.”

That was six years ago. Now, after six months of chemotherapy, a mastectomy, radiation, another mastectomy and no reconstruction, Fernandez is cancer free.
