Three months after being told my mammogram was fine, I found a lump doing a breast self-examination.
I tried to ignore it, but when "Breast Cancer Awareness" month came that year I made the appointment, and ultimately found out I had a very aggressive type of cancer.
That was in 2000 and I'm happy to report that between surgery, radiation and chemo I am cancer free.
Those four words became my mantra and I still repeat them whenever fear hits.
So please do your exams, if you find something get it checked out and if you do get diagnosed, think positive.
And pray for a cure!
