Near and Dear to Me

Breast cancer is a subject I can relate to personally, and very closely. At one time, amidst the excitement of giving birth to beautiful girls, it was questioned whether I had developed cancer due to a rather large mass. Fortunately, it was removed and I'm fine, but that was a very scary time in the middle of a very happy time. A good friend's mother just had a mastectomy and is waiting to see what is next for her. She was sent home from the hospital the same day, but is having problems with drainage and healing.
If this cause is also important to you, please go to this site at Lifetime TV to sign a petition for longer mandatory stays after a mastectomy.
