My story started by attending a local Health Fair. I signed up at several booths to try to win a prize. One is particular was giving away a Free Mammogram. I hadn't had one for years due to our insurance not covering it, cost & I had no history of breast cancer in my family. Well I was blessed by winning the free mammogram they found cancer and it was early. So I am alive today because I won that gift. I believe God had everything to do with my winning.

I am writing on behalf of my husband who is part of another Breast Cancer statistic 1 in 1,000. Seldom mentioned, it applies to MEN who can and do develop Breast Cancer. Both lack of awareness and, sadly, lack of inclination have resulted in delayed recognition and delayed treatment. A man's death from Breast Cancer, is no less tragic than a woman's. BUT, "Men should not die from Breast Cancer out of ignorance!" Share this information & perhaps spare a life.

I went for my yearly mammogram in 2012, and was shocked when I got the news that I had breast cancer. There was no family history of it on either side. The next month was a blur, mastectomy reconstruction, whole new vocabulary. Mine was Stage 1, no chemo, or radiation, just Tamoxifen. Please DON"T put off your mammo!! Get tested! I did, and it was caught early. I have a new lease on life, little things no longer bother me.

I went for my annual mammogram as required by HAP for the lower premium, and sure enough, there it was. I wasn't let out of that office until I had two more appointments. Within three weeks I had two lumpectomies for DCIS, stage 0. I certainly never saw that in my future. No family history at all. The fatigue hit me the hardest as I finished radiation therapy, but now I am back to being 8 lbs overweight, and even working overtime. EARLY DETECTION SAVED MY LIFE!!!!

In 2009 I went for my yearly physical. My doctor wrote a order for my yearly mammagram. I have been going for this for 8 years now and was not worried as I had never felt anything nor had my OBGYN. I received a call from my doctors office to come in NOW. The radialogist had found a lump the size of a garden pea. He had go back and reviewed all of my past films and call my OBGYN to inform him of the lump. I had a lumpectomy, radiation and medication, almost finish and say a prayer every
