If you have someone in your family with a history of cancer you probably fall into one of two camps, you are either super proactive when it comes to all things medical…….or you prefer to keep your head in the sand like me. I honestly didn’t want to know and I was content to not know.
My mom detected breast cancer late at age 51 (she hated going to the doctor) and she passed away at age 57 (after a period of remission when more cancer came back and spread to other parts of her body)……you would think that would make me proactive……but instead it’s made me afraid of the unknown because I’ve had a front row seat to how devastating cancer can be.
You would logically think that this should make me even more proactive, but watching her suffer had an opposite effect on me. As I approached 40, friends and family became more and more vocal about their concerns of my thought process out of their love for me… and through the support of friends, I finally faced my fear of my first mammogram at a Power Lunch.
