    Thank you for sharing your story, Meg!

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

    I watched Meg's videos 1 through 7 this evening.  Her series is very interesting and informative.

    Shortly before Easter 2007, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 75.  She had a lumpectomy followed by radiation and was prescribed Tamoxifen to be taken for about 5 years (I think).  She is doing well, and her follow-ups have been good news thus far.
