Hi, everyone! I am new to the group. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 32 when I was 37 weeks pregnant. This was at the very end of December 2019, and last year I went through chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. Now, I've been in remission for about a year. I just found out about this resource from my team, and I thought it would be helpful to connect with people who have been through a similar experience. I hope you're all doing well.

Hi Sarah, welcome!
Kudos to your team for telling you about Mayo Clinic Connect. Allow me to introduce you to @jessica0. She, too, discovered she had cancer while pregnant. @stephtubman was about the same age as you when she was diagnosed.

Going through cancer treatments from pre-COVID and then transitioning to all the new pandemic protocols in 2020 sure added an extra level of complexity and anxiety. How are you doing now? What do you find most challenging now that active treatment is finished?
