It was 20+ years ago. My doctor stuck a very ugly needle in me to take a biopsy of a large lump in my right breast. Long story short, it was malignant and I had a mastectomy. Why is this a lucky day? I learned so much. I survived.
Lessons learned -
Cherish your family and friends
There is power in prayer
You only get one body; treat it right
Thank your lucky stars for great doctors and medical personnel
Be grateful for volunteers who help you along the way
Support cancer research
Reach out to a cancer patient - it means so much.
