Since October is breast cancer awareness month, I thought I would share my Grandma's story. My sweet Grandma was 46 yrs old when she found out she had breast cancer. She had to have a double mastectomy and she lived to be 95. When she did pass away in 1999, she had a stroke. She beat the odds and I always thought as growing up that was so neat.
Also in 2002 my Mom was 67 yrs old and had to have a double mastectomy. She is doing well so far through all the chemo.She has been cancer free for 7 years Praise God !!! Every year my Mom walks in the Relay for Life. I know the road ahead for me and my sister. I check myself daily and already get yearly mammograms so far. I wonder if someday it will happen to me but I trust the Lord and if it does he will see me through just like my Mom and Grandma.
To everyone I would like to say make sure you get yourself checked out, it's so important It only takes a minute to check. 5 minutes a week gains a lifetime with your loved ones.
