A breast cancer diagnosis will take your breath away.How do I know? My sister had that diagnosis many years ago.

She endured radiation that disfigured her breast. She declined chemotherapy. She opted for Tamoxifen for seven years. Thankfully, she has not had a recurrence.

The mammogram missed the mass but she found it during a routine monthly self-exam. Self-examination likely saved her life. Remember, if you do find a lump, don’t panic…have it examined by a professional. And, always get a second opinion.

Breast cancer treatments continue to expand. Vitamin C therapy, CBD oil, cannabis therapy and essential oils are just a few natural treatments. Breast cancer awareness is celebrated each October. Be aware year-round with self-examination.
