Susan survived cancer in 1999 with a modified radical mastectomy of her right breast. In 2000 a lump was found in her left breast. Susan opted for a second, prophylactic mastectomy. In 2001 a plastic surgeon told her the saline implants were safe and “just water” if they did leak. And they did leak in 2006. The surgical report indicated “a black substance” (mold) that Susan was never told about. These were removed from her body and were replaced with the “new and improved” silicone that would never leak and could not possibly ever make her ill; the stories of women who had gotten sick were from the “old” implants. In 2015 she had these implants removed. You can read Susan’s story here.
Sharon, like so many of us, was healthy and strong prior to getting her saline implants.

Sharon had her implants removed and is getting better but wants to make sure women have the opportunity to make a truly “informed decision”. You can read Sharon’s entire story here.
