One of my best friends was diagnosed with breast cancer right at the start of the year. She is just 41 years old. She had a lumpectomy a couple weeks ago and will start chemo next week. Double masectomy is planned in the near future. Scary time for her family and us friends who love her dearly. She has a great support system with loving family, two great sons (one is a senior and the other is a sophomore, both in High School) and lots and lots of good friends. She is strong and has a positive attitude, so I know she will get through it...just going to be a long road ahead.
Her scare has made me think long and hard about my own health. I've said it before, but I really need to get into action on making my own health a priority. Life is just so precious and I've been taking it for granted for far too long. Enough is enough!
