"My first thought was, 'Really? Me, breast cancer?' I just couldn't believe it," she says. Sykes underwent a bilateral mastectomy in August and she admits it was no easy ride for her. "I was miserable. Every day I had to change bandages and look at it, and it was not pretty at all. I just wanted my life back."
Now Sykes has fully recovered and is back to her loving wife Alex and twin children, Olivia and Lucas. "I feel whole again, I really do. I've told them, 'Mommy's boo-boo is much better now.'"
