Go Angelina!

I have so much to tell you about, almost one month out from my DIEP breast reconstruction.  Wow, hardest slowest month ever.  I thank you so much for all your love and support during a challenging recovery, and will be blogging about it this week.

I wanted to share this with you though, another Sister, a famous Sister, who was not diagnosed but I still regard her as part of our sorority.  She took her health into her own hands with the fearlessness she has always been known for, and then spoke about it! Bravo! Bravo!

Click on this link to read her statement.

I applaud you Angelina, for your practical, brave decision, nevertheless it made me very sad.  Of course, when faced with the decision between our breasts and our lives, we choose life.  We choose life.

That is not to say it makes losing your breasts any easier, even with all the love and support we receive from the men who love us, and the plastic surgery options available for reconstruction.

Early prevention is just not enough.

It hurts every time I hear of another woman whose breasts are butchered and altered because of breast cancer.  Not to mention all those who die from breast cancer every year, despite our best efforts and advances in treatment.

Early prevention is just not enough.

We want a cure.

We want a cure.

Oh, Praise God you're "way better" and moving forward. I kept waiting for the update from my cypergirlfriend and got a little worried there! We are taking the family to Ireland for a couple of weeks and I sort of wanted to be sure you were all right. Sounds weird, but I totally care!! Looking forward to your inspiration... Blessings, F&H
