This is what I looked like six years ago with my youngest baby  girl. Yes I know I'm bald and everyone hates when they see this picture.My family that is. But it is reality and no one is exempt cancer can strike anyone. Young, old, man, women. It is not prejudice. The reason why I'm posting this is because it's October and that's  NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. Get your mammograms. It's worth it. It can save your life.  I remember the day I found out it was cancer. I had a half of day at work cause I had to work that Saturday, and so I went to target picked up some pretty shades for my bedroom. It felt good getting off work early. My husband was home and I seen there was a message on my answering machine so I listened and it was from my doctors office saying to call the office and make an appointment because my doctor wanted to talk to me about my mammogram. Of course I knew what that meant and was scared and shaking. We called the office and told them we couldn't wait we were coming right now. They really didn't want to hear it, but there was nothing they could do. So yes my fears were right doctor had said it was stage two breast cancer. We went home and I just cried and my husband put the music on softly and danced with me. That was the most comforting moment. Right then I knew I was going to be fine. I have the greatest support system. My husband and children and all my dearest friends truly were the best support system anyone could ask for. So what ever you go through in life having a good support group is vital. Of course the greatest of all is my Heavenly Father who supports us through his word the bible.
