I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER FIVE YEARS AGO. I CHOSE TO HAVE A MASTECTOMY. MY HUSBAND WAS MY BEST SUPPORTER. WE HAD BEEN MARRIED 48 YEARS AT THE TIME AND WE DECIDED ONE MORE SCAR WOULDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE ON MY DISFIGURED BODY. I DIDN'T WANT RADIATION, I JUST WANTED IT OFF AND NO MORE CANCER, MY DEAR HUSBAND DEVELOPED PROSTATE CANCER THE VERY NEXT YEAR. HIS BATTLE WASN'T AS EASY AS MINE. I LOST HIM LAST YEAR. GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME IN THESE FIVE YEARS EVEN THOUGH I LOST MY HUSBAND OF 52 1/2 YEARS. WE WERE INSEPARABLE DURING HIS ILLNESS AND THAT IS WHERE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN. THANK GOD, HE KEPT ME GOING!!!! I GO BACK FOR MY FIVE YEAR CHECK UP IN AUGUST

AND WILL HAVE A MAMMOGRAM IN DECEMBER. B THE WAY, A MAMMOGRAM WAS WHAT LOCATED MY TUMOR. LADIES PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO HAVE YOUR MAMMOGRAMS DON E AND MEN DON'T FORGET TO HAVE YOUR PSA'S TAKEN.
