Since all of my previous mammograms had been normal, I almost decided not to have one in 2004. My daughter convinced me to go ahead anyway. A small malignant tumor in my left breast was found. A lumpectomy & radiation treatments followed, and I am approaching my 5th year of being cancer-free. Early detection - and my daughter - saved my life.

I will live to see my grandchildren grow up - and spoil them along the way!
