I want every single person (men too if you want:) who reads this to do a breast self-exam tonight.
That is how I found my cancer. My cancer did not show up on mammogram and mammograms are not even recommended for women my age. I found it and I pursued it. I still do not have a clear picture of treatment and prognosis (still waiting on more diagnostics), but I do know that it would have been much, much worse had I not found this now.
This can happen to anyone. To emphasize this point even more.....I have a good friend who told me that she has 3 friends, all under the age of 40, who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the past two months.
Do your self exam. Now.
