Laurel Trimble - Dr. Marga's September 2009 Mermaid of the Month

Back to Our Mermaids
Laurel Trimble with Dr. Massey

"Dr Marga Massey gave me my life back. I have a family history of breast cancer on both sides of the family. I watched my Mother battle breast cancer and watched my Aunt die of breast cancer at the age of 29. I made the difficult decision to have a prophylactic mastectomy, I wanted to take a pro-active choice and not wait for cancer to come to me."

"Dr. Massey immediately made me feel at ease discussing the different options. We decided on what was best for me. After my surgery, Dr Massey kept in constant contact. As a patient, I felt like Dr. Massey really cared about me, I was not just another case to her."

"The reconstruction took place over a period of several months but was well worth the wait. I feel great and I can wear a swimming suit with confidence. I have my life back, I no longer think about breast cancer on a daily basis. I feel like I have broken the trend in my family. I will not let breast cancer make me another statistic in my family. I love you Dr Massey and will always be grateful to you. Thank you for sharing your compassion and your talents with so many women."

- Love, Laurel Trimble
