October is a challenging month for me, and I imagine that’s true for any parent or child who’s been on the other end of the phone hearing the dreaded words, “my mammogram doesn’t look right …”
This month’s blog is dedicated to anyone touched by breast cancer.
I don’t know if you remember, but it wasn’t that long ago breast cancer was a death sentence. And the fear and stigma around a single or double mastectomy left many women isolated, depressed, and outcast from the life they knew.
Over the last 25 years, Susan G. Komen and many other notable advocates have pushed for change in the care, understanding and treatment of breast cancer patients. I’m certain my daughter’s recovery and ability to move forward is the result of this road built by the women and men before her. I’m forever thankful.
