In 1993-94 my Mom who had Breast Cancer 27 years ago was now battling Colon Cancer. I was her caregiver while she underwent Chemo. During that time I found a lump in my own breast. Instinctively I knew what it was but needed to make my Mom a priorty. I prayed to God , " I don't have time for this ! You gotta take care of me 'cause I'm taking care of her!) In March of 1994 my Mom lost her battle and I had a Mastectomy in May the same year. It was incapsulated so no further treatment was necessary.. It has been close to 15 years now. Mamograms saves lives.Life goes on and in some cases gets even better!
