This set is particularly poignant for me this year as one of my co-workers was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She will be undergoing surgery this week.
It amazes me how much we have learned about breast cancer over the years. My aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer in her late thirties. At that time (the 1950's) she was given one option - total mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy. If you doubt how much progress has been made listen to this... chemo and radiation were HIGHLY experimental at that time. My aunt lost not only her breast but complete and total use of one arm. The radiation was so destructive that the nerves in her shoulder, arm and hand on that side were obliterated. Until the day she left to be with our Lord her arm hung limply at her side... another reminder of the battle she waged...
So let's say we have come a LONG way yet the race goes on... But most importantly ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD.....
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings...
