Twenty years ago today (June 29) I had a mastectomy. I was 34 years old. My son was barely 4 and my daughter wasn't even 2. Surgery, chemo, radiation,lots of prayers and a lot of laughing....here I am...healthy as ever. Please don't let anyone tell you to skip a self breast exam. PS. I prefer the term Victor as opposed to survivor.
