Both my mother and her sister (now in their late 70s) are survivors of breast cancer. My mother had it over 20 years ago and my aunt only a few years ago. I go for my mammograms every year (I'm 43 now) but I also decided to have genetic testing done. Thank G-d, I tested negative for the BRCA 1 and 2 genes. It's really important to have those mammograms done, as well as self-examination. I pray that one day this horrible disease will be eradicated. In the meantime, keep fighting because there's so much to live for and know that we stand by everyone who has to deal with breast cancer! I wish you strength and healing :-)
