Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. -Thoreau
Last year I found a lump in my breast and that kicked off several months of testing and finally surgery. It was scary and I went through an emotional time wondering if I was going to die or live or have my breasts removed or any other scenerio you can imagine. Luckily, everything turned out to be okay and the abnormal cells were all removed and were not yet cancer. Breast cancer has a very important place in my life as my mother and both grandmothers had cancer.
