Normally, I get to write about fun and happy things, but not today.
I just recieved the news that my friend, Renee, succomed to breast cancer last night. When I saw her when I was in New Jersey a few weeks ago, and she was full of hope that a new treatment offered a chance at remission.
When Renee was diagnosed, she herself said that if she had been doing self exams on a regular basis, she would have found the lump, and she was 32 when they found it. I know that I’m not always good about doing self exams…
So I’m saying that we all have to be better about this. Losing one friend to this disease is one too many.
