I just received word from my friend/cousin that she has breast cancer.
She found a lump while doing a breast exam on herself.
That is the bad news.
She has a 98 per cent chance of full recovery.
She will have the lump removed
That is the good news.
She will need radiation afterwards for six weeks, daily.
Please remember my friend next Tuesday that all will go as planned.
For all of you reading this blog - please check your breast
and report anything that feels unusual.
And remember to have a monogram each year.
Early detection is so important!
