I'm a Survivor

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. Something did not look right during my annual mammogram. After biopsies and scans they could not quite determine IF I had cancer so my choice was to wait six months or go to another hospital for more extensive testing. After talking to my doctor I choose the extensive testing. Went to that appointment, and the next day they called me, it was cancer. Scheduled my surgery,when I had my pre-op by surgeon found another lump on the other side--I will take it out during surgery. It too was cancer. I am now 50 years old and VERY thankful. I made it to 50!! Without my mammogram I would not have known as I felt just fine. I am now a survivor! God is wonderful!
