Sally Largey 51, is photographed in the home she shares with her 16 year-old son, John Patrick, and cat, Sly, in Eastham, MA. Sally, who has no family history of breast cancer and no genetic markers, was diagnosed with stage T1c, multi focal, invasive breast cancer in 2017. Three lymph nodes were positive. She had a mastectomy as well as radiation treatments. "My son was my motivation to keep it together," she says. "To break the news to him I referred to World War Z, a zombie apocalypse movie we watched together. The zombies wouldn't attack ill people so I told him that at least I would survive a zombie invasion" she laughs. Sally works at a senior center and said when she returned to work, several women came up to her and told her they'd also gone through it--perhaps a testament to Cape Cod's high breast cancer rate.. "The hardest part was worrying I wouldn't be here for my son and also losing part of my body. I just try to keep swimming," Sally explains. "When a dark cloud appears, suddenly all my blessings shine through and I am grateful," she adds.
