Breast cancer is so scary and it effects so many people. I was told my Aunt and Grandmother had it, but it was not something that was talked about in our family. I can’t even ask them about it since they are both gone. My neighbor recently had it and kicked it to the curb. We also found out that Monkey’s kindergarten teacher and Buddy’s 3rd grade teacher battled it and won. I think one of the scariest things to me is that it could come back after you’ve had it once; that even though you beat it once it could creep back in and ruin your life again. Breast Cancer scares me, a lot! I want to grow old with my husband and I want to hold my grandchildren. I will be calling my doctor this week to see if it’s time for me to start getting mammograms because I want to be safe for my family!
