When the mobile mammogram unit came to my workplace, I didn't think too much about it, but decided to go ahead and do a mammogram that day. In a few days I was notified that there was a growth in the lower part of my left breast. It was cancer, so I went through chemo and than radiation. It wasn't too bad but it certainly wasn't pleasant.

It has been 13 years, and I count myself very lucky, I just had a mammogram and some nodules were seen, and I have to go in November for another mammogram, but I am hopeful, and try not to dwell on the thoughts of it back again.

Good luck to all of you.
