BRITTANIA “TYGA” BRYANT

Dear Friend, My name is Brittania ‘Tyga’ Bryant and I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed September16, 2011 at the age of 25. I discovered my own lump at age 24 and was misdiagnosed due to my “age” and that I did not require a mammogram with no family history of the disease. I have endured a bilateral mastectomy, seven reconstructive surgeries, and a year of intravenous Herceptin treatment. Even through six rounds of chemotherapy, I stayed in good spirits. Even managing to find a way to save my hair, with the use of cold caps, all while sharing my story on social networks. Through social networks I brought attention to my peers that this disease affects our age group as well, and have been connected to several young women who have requested my assistance in their diagnosis and treatment process. Now I’m ready to extend my story even further to assist other young-women who may face this deadly disease. TygaB for Breast Cancer Inc. is catered to the specific needs of young women diagnosed with breast cancer. The focus of ‘TygaB for BC is to spread awareness, educate women on healthy lifestyle changes, and supporting individuals through the diagnosis and treatment process. Ideally I would like for the foundation to be the support system for women who need a little extra support during their fight with cancer. As well as spread knowledge to aid in the overall prevention of cancer. Brittania M. Bryant TygaB For Breast Cancer Inc. P.O Box 2422 Pompano Beach, Fl 33061 tygabsupportspink.com @tygab4bc
