Vanessa Bell Calloway

Vanessa Bell Calloway found that she was diagnosed with breast cancer during stage zero. In an essay, she shared her experience being diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ at 52. This form of cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the milk ducts have not fallen out into the tissue to invade the rest of the breast. Even though it was stage zero, Calloway still had to undergo two lumpectomy procedures, a mastectomy and a reconstructive procedure for her breast.
