Cancer is not playing games with my friends & family
Years back my mom was plagued with breast cancer and ended up having a double mastectomy, twice. She also had the breca test and it was determined that she was not a carrier. Also my Aunt by marriage and her daughter both had breast cancer and both had mastectomies.
Not to sound naive but I thought that this wretched disease would never find its way into my body. I was mistaken.
It’s been almost 3 years now. I got the news that my yearly mammogram did not have a very good result. Long story short I had two spots removed, one in each side. Today I go in twice a year for testing. My point being, if it were not for the early detection and all of the research that has been done I might not be here today going to bat for those who need our support.
2016, 17 & 18 has been very heart breaking for my family. We have lost my uncle Jack. We lost my Aunty Esther, she had colon cancer, Tracy, my husband’s best friend past from lung cancer. Sue, a dear sweet lady that used to work for me, was diagnosed in late 2016 with small cell cancer. She was given maybe a year and a half to live, and this was based on if she was given treatment. My friends mom, Darlene just past from cancer, and her father before that past from cancer also. My husband’s fishing buddy Butch has brain cancer and maybe with treatment might make it 6 months. My Vannessa, her mom Karen is fighting breast cancer right now. And more current, we just lost my husbands brother to lung cancer. The Cancer was found just after the 2018 new year and past the late eve of the 12th. We are all still in a state of shock.
So you see I have every reason to fight cancer. I am tired of losing those around me. Not one of these beautiful people deserved to suffer this nasty disease. The only thing I can do is put one foot in front of the other for the cause. Please consider supporting me. I will do the work for you.
