Breast Cancer

October 18, 2011

Stage 2

Grade 2

Yes

The fear it instills into people. Chemo & how life changes with one word.

There are so many good people in the world. So many angels.

Spread the word about breast cancer & to be positive.

Just being there. A phone call, a visit even if I don't seem in the mood.

Anna Laberge

Sleep, water, and I had really bad taste in my mouth and the best thing was having Freezies in the freezer.

CRY! Never hold in your emotions. even if you need to just get in a shower and cry your eyes out. Also, talk to someone when you need to.

A lump in my left breast the size of a ping pong ball.
