Claira lost her mother and her sister to breast cancer, and she found out that she has a hereditary form of breast cancer about six or seven years ago. Ever since then, she’s known that she would eventually get a preventative double mastectomy — it was just a matter of when.

None of that should be what carries you as a person, or what you attach your identity to.”
