Breast Cancer

I lost my husband to NH lymphoma in November of 2007. In March of 2008, I felt like I needed to have my mammogram done due to the fact that I had not taken care of myself while taking care of him. Much to my surprise, they found 2 malignant tumors in my right breast in stage 1. Due to the type of tumors, I had to have surgery, chemo and radiation. Hopefully I have beaten this monster called cancer. I'm still having some problems with my memory and some pain due to the radiation, but I feel so much better now. This photo was taken right before I lost all of my hair due to the chemo. I am a 52 year old woman and I urge all women to get a mammogram each year. I never felt a lump or any signs. The mammogram saved my life. Wanda Hamby from Kentucky
