I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2007. If I hadn't been going for my early exams, I may have never been diagnosed. Having a lumpectomy and 37 treatments of radiation, I am happy to say I have been "clean" since September 2007. It is very important to get your exams as often as possible. I recently lost an older sister to skin cancer and I am now awaiting results of my biopsies for this also. If I didn't have the support and strength of my family and friends I don't think I would have gotten through the breast cancer or what lies ahead. They are all my angels, and I definitely have a "special" angel in heaven and a shining star in the night sky. I only hope that I can have Linda's strength and will power.
