At 49, my regular annual mammogram showed an "abnormality". Three hospitals were unable to make a definitive diagnosis. Fortunately the biopsy was sent to the Scottsdale Mayo Clinic which discovered a rare tubular cancer found in only 1% to 2% of the population. This year, I celebrate my 10th anniversary cancer-free and "kickin'". Ladies, have an annual mammogram even if you are only in your 20s, 30s or 40s. (The younger you are, the more aggressive cancer can be.) To all my sisters in pink, God bless you.
