Hello I am Nikohl, I am recently effected by the threat of breast cancer. It runs in my family on my mother's side. My grandmother had a masectomy but was a survivor. My MIL is also a survivor.... she is doing amazing in her recovery.
I myself just had my very first mamogram and today they called me back for further images on my right breast. I am praying it is only from some scar tissue.... but I go in monday and well it is weighing very heavy on my heart and mind right now.
I have 3 kids at home - 19, 17 & 12 --- I have chosen to only share my situation with the oldest, my step-daughter 25 - married with 2 kids, she is my best friend and well we tell one another every damn thing LOL
taking a deep breath and trying to stay positive and not let this worry me to the point of being physically ill..... not an easy thing for me --- I have never been sick in my life.
thank you for listening
