So without going into too much detail, my biological aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has already gone in to take care of it and hopefully the reports will come back with no metastasis.
I found out in the freezer section of the grocery store. Sometimes email at your fingers tips isn't a great idea.
I leaned on a freezer for support... I felt like the wind was knocked out of me.
I was completely stunned.
I had my son with me so I was jolted back to reality. He's 2 and demands to be heard.
I forwarded the email to my husband and tried to go on with my list.
I walked about 10 feet before it sunk in.
One thing the doctors always focus on is family history of breast cancer and now I have more of it. Not just a mom but an aunt too.
I think this was the first time I felt like breast cancer might be a reality.
