For you old timers who remember KCSunshine. Her husband passed away today from liver cancer. It's been a terrible year of suffering.

I had the privilege of meeting them about 5 years ago, they are wonderful folks.

For those of you so inclined, please include them both in your thoughts.

Lost my mom to breast cancer when I was 10. My sister had stage 3 breast cancer about 9 years ago. I had stage 1 breast cancer 2 years ago - the same type as my sister. She opted for a double mastectomy - luckliy I only had to have radiation, but no Chemo. My oncologist was not happy that I decided to not have the chemo but the test on the cancer cells showed it unlikely to come back -7% chance, it would be a 5% chance with chemo. Not going through that hell for that kind of result. If it comes back, I will fight it again.

They've found cancer mummies. Just was no name for it in the past.

when a lot more people died young it wasn't as much of an issue.

the point of this time/era is to watch the waste filtering systems (liver, kidneys, bowels) as those are the signs that what you are doing isn't good for ya. of course too is watching the input units (mouth, esophegus, stomach) and the digestive juices operations (gall bladder and pancreas). if those are remaining healthy in most people then your food production and environment are doing pretty well (air quality is another issue but there is a good chance if you're doing ok in the other things you're probably also paying attention to that too)...

My breast cancer was caught by the tech reading my annual mammogram. Caught at Stage 1B. I had surgery to remove the cancer tumor and radiation therapy on that breast. No chemo. I am cancer free and taking estrogen inhibitors to help prevent it from coming back.

My mom died from breast cancer, my sister had breast cancer. I always assumed I would have breast cancer. Odds were at least one of 5 girls would get it - odds are 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer.

Early detection saved my life.
