MyMama - All dressed up for an awards ceremony in 2006

MyBigger Brother & MyMama - Cozumel, Mexico December 2009

MyMama & MyDaddy - Christmas 2008

66 and effortlessly fabulous.

She is a breast cancer survivor.

December 9, 2009 marked her sixth year cancer free.

On Saturday morning she found a lump about the size of a nickel in her right breast.

The same breast that her cancer was in before.

Because she is effortlessly fabulous,

she’s taking this in stride.

She called her oncologist right after she found the lump.

She’s being scheduled for an ultrasound & mammogram.

She is in good spirits,

concerned but not afraid.

She does BSE (breast self exams) every time she showers.

THIS is something new.

Something that basically popped up overnight.

MyBrothers & I are falling apart.

We’ve been able to handle MyDaddy’s renal cancer and subsequent renal failure for the past 11 years.

But  MyMama?!?!

She has always been in good health.

Even when she had her lumpectomy and radiation.

She was still the picture of good health.

This is scary!

We’re walking on faith.

If you pray,

please pray for MyMama.

If you chant,

please chant for MyMama.

However you worship, pray, praise……

Whatever you do!

Please keep MyMama in your thoughts and prayers.

My Fabulous Mama!

    I am so sorry about your mama! She sounds very strong, my thoughts are with you! Perhaps the early detection will help and maybe it is nothing. Good Luck!!!

    I just read this AFTER the update, and my heart just stopped for a moment. I am so glad that it turned out to be nothing. You have one smart mama to recognize the importance of self-checking her breasts. This is wonderful, wonderful news!

    • TheMrs says:

      Thank you MyFriend! I’m so glad that she stays on those jokers! When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she sat me down and asked me to check mine at least once a week. I have done so faithfully since. We are so thankful. God is so very good! 🙂

  4. So glad to read this! Your mama seems like a strong woman. We will keep her in our thoughts.
