    Taylor-Ann Fultz of Lewistown was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 23. Her little girl Sydni was just about to celebrate first birthday. Taylors mom, Lori Truitt, stepped in like moms do when their kids need them. Lori babysat Sydni and monitored Taylor''s cancer treatments and progress. After all, Taylor was still her baby. Taylor had an invasive ductal carcinoma. In September 2015, she had a double mastectomy. Taylor was living a cancer free life and in July 2016, she was overjoyed to hear she was pregnant with her second baby. Three weeks before baby Karsyn was due, doctors found another lump in Taylors breast. Taylor was devastated. With two babies she needed to care for and live for, Taylor knew she needed to take care of herself and fight this disease. And her mom was there for her, once again. Lori helped with babysitting and provided support in every possible way. I can always count on my mom, at 2 a.m. or 6 p.m. I want everyone to know what a hero my mom has been. I cannot and will not give up. I want everyone out there who is diagnosed with cancer to be strong and remember that cancer is not stronger than you. #Family #Moms #BreastCancerAwareness

    When Barbara McCutcheon a nurse of 35 years from Etters saw a change in her mammogram she knew right away it was breast cancer. I was still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I had breast cancer and before you knew it, it was done, she says. Barbaras stage 1 breast cancer treatment included a lumpectomy and brachytherapy with a SAVI device - which delivers targeted radiation directly to the lumpectomy site and is an alternative to externally delivered radiation. I knew the side effects of external radiation and there was none of that with my treatment. The people at Geisinger Holy Spirits Breast Care Center did a very good job explaining everything to me. And everyone was so nice. I felt they truly cared and were concerned for me. Now I take oral chemo daily a pill and I will do that for five years as a preventive measure. But I have faith and I feel pretty good right now. #GeisingerStories #BreastCancerAwareness #radiation #caring
