I was one of the lucky ones; a mammogram found what self-exams couldn't. I had a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation and now am on hormone therapy for 5 years. If I can survive the hot flashes, I'll be just fine.

I'm a single mom of two adopted girls. The hardest thing was reassuring my daughters that they weren't going to lose yet another mother.I have survived and I believe my daughters are stronger for having gone through this with me.

I can't imagine having taken this journey without the unwavering support of a friend who was with me every step of the way. There's no reason to go it alone. Let people help you.
