My cancer was diagnosed on a mammogram.  As with many of you, I can’t remember the exact details of the day and the many days that followed, but from the day I got the phone call, and many weeks thereafter, my mind was like mush.  It was as if a demon had possessed me, and […]

My aunt and cousin both died from breast cancer. My dear friend has survived breast cancer twice and my sister-in-law is also a breast cancer survivor.
