Breast cancer awareness became something very close to me when just a year after retirement (Out the door in '04), my mother discovered through her own self-exam, a lump in her breast.
She was subsequently diagnosed with breast cancer, and two months later had a mastectomy.
She was a candidate for the Oncotype DX® - Breast Recurrence Score® Test (Oncotype DX is a test that predicts how likely breast cancer is to spread to somewhere else in the body (secondary breast cancer) within 10 years of diagnosis, in people who will be taking hormone therapy for at least five years) and was the first for her insurance to process the claim. The results indicated that further treatment was not necessary. Yippeee!!!!
Prior to the surgery and as quickly afterwards, her fitness routine included 5 miles on a bike and 5 miles walking everyday. I know that her attention to diet and exercise is paying off. What a testimony for all of us to observe.
I chose to work with the Positively Pink 10" square stack collection and came up with my Positive Attitude design.
