Friday was Breast Cancer Awareness day and our newspaper was pink!


I had a scare this year with something that was found on my mammogram. It turned out to be nothing and I thank God for that. My prayers are with all the people in our world who are suffering from breast cancer and all the other cancers that take the lives of those we love. (((HUGS)))

I've had so many scares over the years! I have had a breast MRI every 6 months for the last year and a half. They have just moved it to once a year. I have had two open biopsies and several needle biopsies. Honestly, mine are just suspicious little things! But never has it been cancer for which I am so very grateful!

I hate scares. Hate them. And cancer- I hate it too. It's taken one grandmother, both my FIL and MIL and tried to take my dad. Stupid cancer. My MIL passed away from breast cancer. I really hate cancer.

I'm glad you are o.k. too Debby!
I've had several scares also.
I have three friends going through treatment now (one very serious) and several others who have already completed treatment and are doing well. It is just too common...an epidemic really. I pray for all who are going through it now and I pray that we can stop it! Bless all those who are striving to put an end to it.
Bless you, sweet friend!

Scares are horrible. I had one 3 years ago when I was 27. Luckily, it was only tissue. Glad you are okay. Cancer sucks. I love the pink newspaper!
