Out in the Open Day 1: June 28

I talk about my predicament much more easily. I was afraid it would be difficult to discuss, but – for the most part – people are just as nervous in talking about it as I am. And talking to most about it is encouraging.

Of course, you do run into the boneheads who don’t get it and yammer on about the person they know who was encouraged to have a double mastectomy so that the situation wouldn’t arise again in the remaining breast or how many people they know who have died from breast cancer.  Now those are really the comments you want to hear when you’re facing a breast cancer. Real encouraging, don’t ya think.

A few months ago I wasn't but now I'm a statistic. That doesn't define me. I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a step mom, a grandmother, a friend and a Christian. I will continue to love exercise, music, cooking and food, and my family and friends. I'm stubborn, energetic, giving and too OCD for my own good sometimes. And I'm going to stay this way - despite cancer and the treatments that it takes to give it the royal beatdown.
