Squeeze those TATAS!!!



As everyone probably knows already, this month is breast cancer awareness month. This year it meant more to me than I ever expected because on September 22ND I went with my friend from work on her 41st birthday to find the mass in her breast was cancer.


She has SUCH extreme faith and such a positive attitude I would be a baskettcase!! She is now living only by the knowledge that it's all in God's hands. (Pretty good attitude I'd say) It's only been a couple weeks since she was diagnosed, but because the lump was 4 by 6 cm they have already started Chemotherapy. So there fits the title to this blog...get your mammograms!!


I see first hand how common breast cancer is working at a family physician's clinic and it is SO treatable and curable!!!!


All I ask now is for everyone's prayer for Lucretia, she is a single mom working 2 FULL time jobs, and is putting her son through college. YIKES her plate is full! I truly believe and always have that everything happens for a reason and feel as though she will fight through it better than I ever could. So please think of her in your prayers family and friends it's what yall are good at!!!
