Thought Id throw it out there...
I don't have Breast Cancer. My grandmother died from it when my dad was 17. My mom was diagnosed last fall. I'm almost 17 years old, and in my whole entire life, I've never had to cope with something so difficult. By this I mean seeing my mom, a strong and intelligent woman, get set back by something so devastating.
She finished chemotherapy last month. It was a true milestone in this journey. After surgery, we found out that her tumor shrank 63%. Yes, that is quite a lot, but not as much as we wanted, so she has to take more medication and possibly have a second surgery.
My heart and support goes out to everyone who is affected by this life-altering process, or anyone who is like me and is affected by it.
I know that I am at risk to develop Breast Cancer. I'm just happy to know that I can have people who have the same problems to be there and support me!
Stay strong ladies!
