Jumping for Joy


I am so thankful that my biopsy came back negative for cancer. YAY! I was really expecting the surgeon to tell me that I had breast cancer, I was. Mentally, I was prepared to hear those words from his lips. When he told me that everything was okay, I was speechless.

When I arrived home, the first call I made was to our local breast cancer support center to offer my time as a volunteer. I hope to help those women for whom breast cancer is all too real. How can I inspire? I can't wait to make a difference in some way.

Thanks for the prayers and support- please stay up on your health, do your exams and dont be shy about getting a mammogram. Just treat yourself to luxurious cosmetics or spa products when it's over and it won't seem that bad at all.

I'm so glad your biopsy came back negative. I went through the same scare last fall. I wish you continued good health, and take care.

This is my first time on your site (I found it because of a link on Brenda Scott Royce's site) and I'm happy to hear your good news. I'm a novelist, too and recently had a similar situation -- except that I did have cancer, which of course sucked, except for the huge fact that it was Stage 0 (I'd never heard of Stage 0, but it means it's there but hasn't gone anywhere. Yet.) Just wanted to underscore your advice to your readers that it's so important to go and get checked so that even if something is found it's found early. My experience picks up where yours left off (I wrote about it in a series of posts on my website -- www.laurazigman.com), but I still consider myself lucky. Best regards, Laura

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
