Increase in women being diagnosed with breast cancer

A recent study found that more young women are developing breast cancer

Rachel Bogard was just 31 years old when she found out she had breast cancer.

"I was pregnant, early on in my second trimester, and I started to feel a lump in my left breast," she said.

That was December 2022. Bogard was stunned, but knowing that cancer spreads fast, she acted even faster.

"So I did four rounds of chemo while pregnant, which was really scary ... I had an induction at 35 weeks. And then a week after I gave birth, I went back on chemo for twelve more rounds. And then after that I had a double mastectomy," Bogard said.
