Dear coworkers, friends, and family,

This year, more than 250,230 women and men will hear the words, âYou have breast cancer,â and thereâs a good chance that some of them will be people we know and love. I have chosen to fight back against this disease and help make a difference by participating in the October 5 American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Hartford, and I hope you will join me.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is our opportunity to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, educate women about early detection and prevention, and raise money to fund lifesaving research and support programs that help ease the burden of patients and their families. But Making Strides is more than just the name of a walk; it describes the amazing progress we can make if we work together to defeat a disease that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with in their lifetime.

Below is a link to my personal page. I hope you will visit my site and sign up to join my team. If you prefer, you can start your own team, sign up to walk as an individual, or make a donation. Hope starts with me and it can continue with you. Please join my team and walk with us to experience an incredible day of inspiration and meaning, and to provide hope for all people facing breast cancer, as well as the next generation.

To donate now, use this link to visit my personal page.

I am so sorry to hear this!

It's terrible that it usually takes this happening to someone we know to get the rest of us to take it seriously.

When it hit the family of a co-worker, my friend and I made a pact to get our first mammogram. The next morning she called me and said, "My appt is tomorrow. You have until the end of the day to make your appt!"

Please keep us posted on her progress. She's part of our CC family, ya know!

thumbs_up.gif The journey to Fight Cancer !!!!!

Come on, take the journey
you, me and all, take the step
no matter time or distance
all irrelevant
for a broken spirit the longest journey
is to the front door to open it
Reach out, give, take,
challenge the road, the journey calls
inside out, outside in
open your soul, your heart
let it be the bridge
to walk your journey
Fly with the wings of the thought
feel with the wisdom of yesterday
burry the sorrow, make place for the new
rejoice in what will come and dare
give way, don't let nothing frighten you
just make the journey of the heart

I Believe That together, We can Fight This! =]

I am so sorry to hear this, I wish her the very best!!

My grandmother was first diagonosed with breat cancer several years ago, while her mother was dying with cancer, it was only in the one. It was treated with Radiation, cancer free for about 9 years. It shows back up in the same breast, she had it removed. She now only wishes she would have though first and also had the other removed. She says it is just another worry.

I do wish and pray for the best, cancer is such a serious things. So many people don't understand the importance of early detection!! Early detection will save your life!!! I do hope each woman- and man on here understands how serious cancer is. I am stepping off my soapbox now, sorry.

Your family will be in my prayers.

My family has had every kind of cancer you can imagine. On Weight Watchers we have a group that is donating a certain amount of money per pound lost to donate to breast cancer awareness.

So sorry this is happening to your sister. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

I make handcrafted soap and sell them at my husbands store. 10% of my sales goes to Susan G Komen For the Cure and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It's not much but every little bit helps and it still allows me enough left over to buy my soaping supplies.

Cancer will affect everyone of us in one way or another. Research has come a long way.

I'm thankful for every day I am given.

That is so horrible! My mother went through breast cancer twice. (Once in each breast) The first one they found was when she was 35, but ignored until she was 40. icon_eek.gif She got a new dr after that. My mother's new dr told her that both me and my sister needed to get our first mam. by the time we turned 30. I talked to my obgyn about it and she agreed and told me to make an appt. I got the worst run around about it. I had 7 different people ask me why I needed to come in and then the tech. said "Well I'm not sure if we can do it." I was already there for my appt. I'm sorry, but if my dr agrees that I need one, why is it any of the tech's business. I did finally get it and it came back fine. People don't understand that women under 40 get breast cancer too. It just frustrates me. Your sister will be just fine. By the way, unless it's really bad she may not need a mastectomy (sp?) My mom still has both of hers. She fought the dr's about it and they ended up doing a lumpectomy (sp?). She did say that if she gets it for a 3rd time that she will be getting them both taken off and get a perky pair of boobs. icon_wink.gif Good luck with everything. Your sister definately needs your support right now. thumbs_up.gif

I have a horrendous family history of cancer, so I have been getting mammograms since before I was 30. They are mostly for baseline and being careful. I also just had a breast MRI-- better test for many kinds of cancer. I have also had ultrasounds. Apparently, they all find different things. So far, I have no first degree relatives, but my dad's parents both died of cancer, his mother of breast cancer at 36, and his father of pancreatic at about 57. His brother died of colon cancer at 46. My mother has 6 siblings, all of whom have had cancer, one of them twice. All have survived, except one. We take this very seriously in my family. I hope that this thread makes everyone go out and get whatever screenings are recommended for their age groups-- and even earlier if you have a family history.

I hope for the best for the OP and her family.
