Wendy Mullin, 63, is photographed at her home in Centerville, MA. Wendy, who grew up on Nantucket, has the PALB2 gene mutation which gives her an 80% chance of getting breast cancer. She is currently undergoing treatment for invasive intraductal breast cancer and has had a double mastectomy as well lymph node removal and chemotherapy treatments. She still has a variety of treatments ahead of her. "One of the more freeing moments of my breast cancer journey was the day I had my head shaved," Wendy explains. "I felt empowered by taking this step as it was far less unnerving than observing my hair falling out each day," she adds. Wendy has always been a lover of plants, nature and the outdoors and tries to spend as much time as she can enjoying them. "I have found peace and serenity in caring for and being among my indoor and outdoor plants and garden," she adds.
