Hi Ellen, Thank you for bringing so much attention to breast cancer. I am a 2 year survivor. I had just started a new career as a sewing teacher in a high school at age 58 when I was diagnosed from a routine mammogram. Eight days after surgery, my mother died so it was quite a month! Thanks to my family and friends who got me through all the chemo and radiation, I could not have done it without them. For all of those who are newly diagnosed, it really isn't too bad. I never missed a day of work and the wonderful people I met along my journey I will carry in my heart forever. I could always count on a good laugh watching our show and I thank you for that!
