OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – If you pass Kim Garcia on the street, you’d never know she was in the middle of her second fight against breast cancer.
“I mean it has been super scary this time around,” Garcia said. “The what-ifs.” Both diagnoses coming after a routine mammogram, the first in 2009 caught in stage 0. Garcia underwent a lumpectomy and radiation but no chemotherapy.
“Outward, no one knew except for the people that I told I had cancer. Nobody could tell visually looking at me what I was going through,” Garcia said.
That wasn’t the case this time, Garcia had a double mastectomy in April and weeks of chemo ahead of her.
“Which can be really scary,” she shared. “It’s as scary as hearing the word cancer.”
Garcia feared her ability to privately fight the disease would be taken from her. That is, until her medical oncologist Dr. Margaret Block told her about The DigniCap.
