Rare Breast Cancer and a Mastectomy at Age 8

11.29.15 Chrissy

Holy Hormones Journal Age 8 – what have we done? What are the epigenetics involved? You look at the mom who had cervical cancer and a father exposed to unknown chemicals as a veteran of Desert Storm diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Three out of three people in one family.

According to a study abstract in NIH:

Arch Pathol Lab Med. 2011 Dec;135(12):1606-10. doi: 10.5858/arpa.2010-0351-RS.

Secretory breast carcinoma: unique, triple-negative carcinoma with a favorable prognosis and characteristic molecular expression.

Secretory carcinoma is a rare but distinct subtype of breast carcinoma, with characteristic histomorphology and generally favorable prognosis. Although it was originally described as a juvenile breast carcinoma, occurring in young children, most cases have been reported in adults of both sexes….Although rare events of axillary lymph node or distant metastases have been documented, the prognosis is generally excellent. The methods of surgical treatment and the role of adjuvant therapy, particularly for young patients, remain controversial. Source

Environmental toxins and our exposure to them are building up in our bodies. We are passing on increasing amounts to our children…. and to their children and to their children. The epigenetic effects are going to be devastating. They already are for this one family. It is so crucial to detox and to be on a serious regime of micronutrients.

8-year-old diagnosed with breast cancer to undergo mastectomy

CENTERVILLE, UT. (KTVX) – It’s a diagnosis rarely seen in someone so young. A Salt Lake City 8-year-old girl is battling breast cancer. Chrissy Turner’s parents, Troy and Annette found out the Centerville Elementary third grader has a condition usually associated with grown women. “It was about the middle of October she came to us with a lump on her chest and was scared.”

A series of tests produced a result almost beyond comprehension.

“It is a very rare form of breast cancer. It’s called secretory carcinoma. Only 1 in one million are diagnosed and she is the youngest that they’ve run across having this particular type of breast cancer,” said Annette. “I broke down. It’s a struggle every day worrying about my family, about my husband and now my baby girl.”

The Turners have been in similar situations before.

Annette, a personal trainer and holistic life coach, is a cervical cancer survivor and troy, a desert storm veteran who works at hill air force base, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma when Chrissy was just a baby. “She was our therapy when he was going through chemotherapy. She was always making us laugh and she’s got the wit of someone far beyond her age.”

Chrissy and her parents know that she has a difficult battle ahead of her. It will start here at the Huntsman Cancer Institute where she will undergo a mastectomy.

“I was scared the first time that I knew about it but I knew, I knew that I could fight it off and I hope that I can fight it off,” said Chrissy.

Friends of the family have started a Go Fund Me campaign to raise money for the family’s medical bills while the turners vow to stay strong for Chrissy.

“We’re just going to keep fighting and doing everything we can to smile every day and laugh every day and carry our head high and do our best to overcome this.”
