Really? I have to wonder exactly what is going on here. Why is there so much cancer in our society? Breast cancer infiltrated our family a few years back when my mother-in-law was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. Less than 2% of all breast cancers are this type. Less than 10% of those diagnosed live another 5 years. Surgery, radiation and lots of chemotherapy didn’t change any of those statistics. In the end, she lost the battle.
My mom suffered from breast cancer as well. She turned her back on treatment in the traditional sense. She acted as if there was nothing wrong. She never had the cancer diagnosed when she found the original lump back in 1995. Instead she opted out of the usual cut, burn and poison therapy. She put her faith in God and prayed it would go away. She didn’t want any part of it. Years later her secret lump spread throughout her body and took her life.
My girls have lost both of their grandma’s to breast cancer. It’s scary .They don’t fully understand. When they were younger, they thought cancer was contagious and now they think it’s just bad luck.
A friend of our family was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. It was all pretty sudden. She’s already had surgery and plans to have extensive chemo and radiation…heavy sigh. Here we go again.
