How do you take it all in? How do you comprehend the words Breast Cancer? I can't! I have worked in hospitals for years and I have seen the brilliant strides we have made in treated this disease. I know those who have survived and I know those who couldn't fight any longer. What I never knew, was a family member who had Breast Cancer, until now, until three weeks ago, my mom is the first in our family, not because of genetics, but hormone therapy the doctor told her. At 71 years old, my mom just had a Radical Mastectomy, now the fight begins, or not. This is her fight, our fight, your fight and I want my mom to win!
