October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I thought it was time to update you on my health. I AM CANCER FREE! Yahoo! Although I still have some residual aches, for the most part I’m as good as new. I’m healthy, happy and wiser.

The wiser part is the other reason for my post today. Please tell every woman in your life to get their mammograms. Caught early (as in my case) cancer is curable. Because I had my mammogram they found the cancer early, I had a full mastectomy (both breasts – good choice – they found cancer in the other breast), and I did not have to have chemotherapy or radiation. It was a scary ordeal, but manageable and I am now dancing with NED (No Evidence of Disease) as they say!

You honored me by your generous support – for which I will be forever grateful - now please honor the other women in your lives and encourage them to get their mammograms.

Once again, thank you for your good wishes. It made all the difference in the world and I appreciate what you all did for me.

And yes - I have been knitting - Man Socks - hope he likes them!! I can't find the ball band - but I think it's Cascade Heritage.....I know I saved that band!

Hope everyone is enjoying these last few nice days!!
