"On average, mammography will find 90 percent of the breast cancers in women without symptoms." - Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization.
Breast cancer. There, I've said it. Nothing could have floored me more than to hear those words. After all, I've never had a major illness, disease, or operation; I breast-fed my daughter; there's no breast cancer history in my family. I thought the fuss about the biopsy was nothing more than an exercise in caution. The doctors even said it was probably nothing. I forgive them though. One of their jobs is to provide hope.
