Sorry to hear of your diagnosis at such a young age. Please be aware, though, that there is no "cure" for breast cancer... we all hope we are "fine," but at best, we are "no evidence of disease." There also isn't a way that I know of to prevent breast cancer. We can be vigilant about our health in general, and we can do things to decrease our risk factors for cancer, but like all cancers, there is no way to absolutely prevent breast cancer. We all hope to see the day when breast cancer can not only be prevented, but cured!
I know you said you were 20 at diagnosis...just wondering how old you are now?
One of the nice things about healingwell is that we can share our experiences with others who have "been there." Somehow, firsthand knowledge of a disease or a treatment is very different from looking at it from a scientific viewpoint that an article or a video might give. I hope you will feel free to share your experiences with us.
