Don't let time slip by without taking care of yourself. I was never good at doing self-exams, and just never could remember to look up the phone number and make an appointment for a mammogram. I let 6 years go by in between mammograms. Yes, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and have undergone surgery and chemotherapy. Had I had more frequent mammograms, we would have caught it earlier and I could probably have avoided the chemo. Had I had a more aggressive tumor, I wouldn't be here to tell this story. But I'm almost a year out now from chemo and a mastectomy and am doing great, thanks to all of the medical advances in treating this disease. But, please, take care of yourselves and have regular mammograms!
