My best friend’s wife’s mom — which sounds like many more degrees of separation than it really is — was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. This is definitely something to file under “Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?”, and I truly, truly despise that folder in my life. His wife is going to participate in The San Diego Breast Cancer 3-Day to generate support. Do me a favor — c’mon, do I really ever ask you for anything? — and help them blow away their goal. They’re already almost half-way there.
… Pam was diagnosed with INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER on March 29, 2006. She always had NORMAL mammograms until one day when she noticed swelling in her breast, no lump! She went to the doctor who ordered an MRI which revealed nothing significant. They opted to do a surgical biopsy which revealed the malignancy. Since her diagnosis she has shown such grace. Her mission is to educate women that even when you don’t have a lump, if something doesn’t feel right, go to the doctor, educate yourself and be persistent. If she wasn’t aggressive to check this out early, we may not have had this fighting chance!
