Still, there i sroom for hope

I took the day off today to read to my son's preschool class and to visit my mother who was in the hospital to have a lump removed from her breast. The doctor thought that she was in stage zero breast cancer; stage zero really being pre-cancer. She was not, as it turns out. One of the lymph nodes was involved. This means that instead of stage zero, she jumps to stage two. Mortality rates change and treatment becomes very different.

Still, there is room for hope. And still, I will hope.

Her mother, my grandmother, died of breast cancer when she was just 59, you see.

It's important to remember that catching it early is more than half the battle.

Sending much love and good thoughts to you and your Mom.

Absolutely, there's always room for hope, because as we've has seen anything can happen. My grandmother was given months to live 4 years ago, and now she's 97, it's absolutely amazing what hope, faith and willpower can do!
