My parents were killed in 1976. My mother was 41 when she died.
In 2006, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After surgery and radiation, I am a survivor.
I have 2 sisters, one is my identical twin. She just found out she had a positive biopsy. We don’t know where the cancer came from since nobody else in our family has had breast cancer. My twin supported me when I fought my battle. I will support her while she fights hers.
