she had run. The biopsies said that I was positive for breast cancer. I was sitting on the end of my bed when I heard the news.
It wasn’t like in the movies with screaming and crying. I didn’t even feel scared. I was numb and truthfully, now that I look back, I was in denial. I didn’t realize it at the time of course. It really didn’t hit me until later. It felt like, ok now what? It was very weird. It felt as if it was happening to someone else, not me. After all no one in my family had ever had breast cancer.
