The Warrior Box with guest Angela Zografakis

“BRCA gene carrier and breast cancer survivor shares her cancer story with us.” “I’m warning y’all”, this episode was an emotionally tough one for me. Cancer fighter mom Angela Zografakis shares her story with us. BRCA gene carrier, mom to 4 children. How this stranger touched me personally during my fight. Angela shares her cancer journey as it began when she was only but a little girl losing two moms to cancer. How that impacted her family and how her dad had to put the “caretaker hat” back on to yet another woman in his life; but this time, his daughter. Angela takes us through her diagnosis in her mid thirties, her chemotherapy and radiation. She talks about the decision to have a preventative double mastectomy and hysterectomy when she discovered that she was BRCA positive. Powerful episode!
