Meet Emmy Pontz-Rickert, Young Breast Cancer Survivor

Emmy Pontz-Rickert, an Ypsilanti Twp. MI mom, has been the face of our web page and book cover, even book spine, since the beginning. Photographer Kathleen Galligan captured Emmy’s beauty, poise and strength. Diagnosed at age 24 with breast cancer, Emmy underwent surgery and chemotherapy and now three years later is expecting her second child. Her story is part of the changing demographics of breast cancer surgery and reconstruction.

Emmy’s full story anchors the silicone breast implant chapter of the book, which is being stocked and will be available later this week, according to Rowman and Littlefield, publisher. Here’s the link to order “Breast Cancer Surgery and Reconstruction: What’s Right for You.”
