Wednesday, I have just a moment

We hear about, we see something about breast cancer every day. It doesn't really hit home until it is your family.....your mom, your sister, your daughter.....or you.

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a few days ago and had a dreadful surgery today........mastectomy. She has a rare and aggressive breast cancer which does not fit the usual "lump" scenario....and she had a mammogram which was read as negative. She knew something was wrong and fortunately, finally, someone listened.

My message for know what feels right sometimes.......and you know what feels wrong. Stand up for yourself and speak up or it could cost your life.

Get regular examinations by qualified doctors and ALWAYS get a second opinion.

Mom, we love you. Get well soon.

I am so sorry RM. Was it inflammatory breast cancer? If so, KOMOTV’s web site has lots of great information about it. Hugs to both of you!
