My aunt is a breast cancer survivor. And I'm so very lucky she is. She raised helped raise me for most of my life and can't imagine where I'd be if I didn't have her in my life.

I cautioned my senior classes about getting mammograms. As a result, 4 of the hundred older ladies discovered cancer at an earlier stage than if they had waited.
