Samantha Harris decided to get the double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She spoke with three different specialists about her options and was told she could either do a double mastectomy or have lumpectomy with radiation. After doing some research, Harris chose to go with the former, reports People.

Samantha Harris felt that a double mastectomy was the best way to take control of her life. She said that she needed to do what was right for her family and that she felt relived after calling to set up an appointment for the procedure, People notes.

“My dad wasn’t able to walk me down the aisle,” Samantha Harris told ABC News[4]. “I will be here to plan my daughter’s weddings and they better likethe dress I pick.”
