One More To Go
Four years ago today, my mother underwent a partial mastectomy to remove cancerous tissue from her left breast.
She was lucky - we're all very lucky - in that the cancer was caught early and it was removed entirely. She required neither chemotherapy nor radiation and hormone therapy wasn't even deemed necessary in her case (it was recommended, but she opted not to go that route).
I love you, Big Mama, and we are so very blessed to have you.
