Just Confirmed: Fox 2 News Will Film on Friday

Just spoke with Reporter Amy Lange and confirmed that Fox 2 News Detroit will be filming a piece on me and my family this Friday. Amy and a camera person will be following Don and I to my chemotherapy appointment Friday afternoon. This will be a piece that will not only promote breast cancer awareness overall, but will focus on the possibilty of a diagnosis post double-mastectomy — a possibility too many women are unaware of, as I was before my Stage 4 diagnosis in January.

Too many women mistakenly believe they are “home free” once they’ve gone through a double-mastectomy — and the number of women who are undergoing this procedure has skyrocketed in recent years with the growing availability and popularity of genetic testing. I believe that allowing the media to interview and film my family and tell our story can and will save lives. And that’s always, always the goal.

Though I’ve known this piece was coming, I didn’t know until tonight when it would be filmed. I don’t yet know when it will be aired, but as soon as I have a date and a time, I’ll post it on my blog. For those of you outside of the Fox 2 News Detroit viewing area, I will post a link to the piece on the Fox 2 News website if it’s available.

I’m grateful to Amy Lange and her team at Fox 2 News Detroit for their interest in this story and in educating their viewers.
