Tanja Thompson is the author of “What to Expect When you Weren’t Expecting Breast Cancer” (Amazon), contributor to “I’ve Been Diagnosed Now What? Courageously Fighting Cancer in the Face of Fear” . Tanja has survived breast cancer survivor twice. She is 25-year Veteran of the U.S. Air Force who was retired with a service-connected disability of one hundred percent. Tanja Thompson is also a TEDx Speaker, she delivered a powerful talk, "From Tragedy to Triumph" reference her breast cancer journey, where with her 1st diagnosis she lived in shame and hide from the world she had breast cancer
Tanja was first diagnosed in 2005 with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) – positive breast cancer in both breasts. At the time the standard of care was a bilateral mastectomy, axillary lymph node biopsies, skin sparing for reconstruction surgery, but no chemotherapy or radiation. She had a reoccurrence in 2010, only five years from her first diagnosis of breast cancer. This time she found a lump in her left breast and the biopsy showed HER2+, Estrogen- and Progesterone-positive receptors. Tanja endured treatment with chemotherapy and radiation to treat her second episode of breast cancer. She selected a transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap (TRAM) for reconstruction of her left breast.
Tanja is a transformational speaker, conflict coach, and breast cancer advocate. Often people will hear her say, early detection is the key – it saved my life twice. Ironically, just 14 months prior to her 2005 diagnoses she had her baseline mammogram with results negative for breast cancer. When repeated imaging studies were made, the cancer that appeared was obviously aggressive in nature. In that short span of time, the cancer had ravished throughout both breasts.
