My mother did when she was 29 and then again at age 31. It was very hard for the whole family, I was only 10years when she was diagnosed with breast cancer the first time.
I for myself, now 24yrs old, have to see my OB/GYN every 6months for the special check-ups now, to make sure I'll be alright ect. I actually have my very first mammogram next month and Im pretty sure that everything is good, but I'm still nervous and afraid.
My mother is now cancer-"free" since 12 years. We cross our fingers that she always will be healthy. Its horrible to see your own mother suffer so bad.
I hope that you will be alright too and that your family is there for you to support you.
