My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1984. She had her right breast removed and went for chemo every week for a whole year. At first she was handling the chemo great, then as the weeks, months went by, she was getting sicker and sicker with each treatment. We would walk out of the office and she would be sick. Mom never lost faith that she would get better and she said every minute was worth her being sick as long as the cancer was gone. Well, mom has been cancer free starting her 25th year this year and I am so proud of her. I thank God everyday that she is still around. My sister and I bother get our yearly mamograms because we know one of us could be next.
