Miranda McKeon was in the bathroom, adjusting her shirt, when she found the lump on her breast. She had been spending the weekend at a beach house with her friends after a year of pandemic college classes, excited for a relaxing summer, and "brushed across a lump that I hadn't felt before," the Anne with an E actress tells PEOPLE.
"I had the thought that, 'Wow, this is the moment.' I immediately went to the worst case scenario," she says. "This is the moment where everything changes and there's no going back. But after going down a little Google rabbit hole, my mind was at ease because I didn't think anything could be wrong because of my age."
