I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2002. The lump was discovered at my yearly gyno appointment. Six different mammogram shots finally confirmed its presence. I had a lumpectomy and radiation which was followed by 6 years of Arimidex therapy. Thanks to the support of family, friends, great medical personnel, and a lot of prayer, it all went very well. I was blessed that it was caught at a very early stage. My only risk factor was having one cousin who had it. It's vital that we all be proactive and use all three weapons against this disease---self exams, yearly doctor's checks, and annual mammograms.
