In the year of 1995, I found that I had breast cancer. It was on the left side in the lower part of my breast.

I was so scared, that I cried regularly throughout the day. I wanted to just go and hide. What I did do, was start my treatment as soon as I could. I had surgery twice, and started my chemo and than when that was completed I had extensive radiation.

So far, thank God, I still am here.

I must admit that I am so scared, everytime that something else comes up like pain anywhere in my body the first thing that I think of is 'is it back again.'
