This Saturday our Hostess with the Pink Mostess Beverly is featuring Breast Cancer Awareness. Last year at this time I did not have a personal family member who had suffered from this terrible disease. This last January my sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
Kathy had a fall down a flight of stairs and bruised her breast. After a few months she started bleeding from that breast and went to her local doctor. Did not expect to have cancer but the doctor found a spot and was told to go to a specailist. We all thought it was maybe a large bruize that caused the bleeding but no it was maligant cancer.
After several pictures they found cancer all the way back to the breast wall. They removed the whole breast. After all the tests the cancer HAD NOT SPREAD TO THE LYMPH NODES!!! No more treatment!!! She does however take a pill everyday for the next 5 years to help with the occurance of further cancer developing in the other breast!!
All we can say and its kind of wierd---but thank goodness for the fall- this way they found the lump!!!
Below is a picture of one of the beautiful fountains turned pink from the Country Club Plaza in our city.
Ofcourse you find that famous pink ribbon everywhere around in October but this is just a little one I found at a fair this month.
