This upcoming week will be emotionally draining, but I am determined to remain strong and positive. My grandmother (a 20-year breast cancer survivor) was recently diagnosed with Paget’s Disease of the breast, a rare form of breast cancer that accounts for less than 5% of all breast cancer cases in the United States. Today she is having a radioisotopic dye injected to help the surgeon remove any affected lymph nodes during surgery, and tomorrow she will undergo her second mastectomy.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I’d share a great article I recently came across.

I’ve scheduled a couple of posts for the remainder of the week so be sure to catch those. Thank you to everyone who has offered well wishes and prayers!
