For the first time since starting this blog, I am blogging about an illness that I don't have, Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Because so few women have heard of it and so few doctors have actually seen a case of it, it is called the silent killer.
When I opened my email this morning, I found that a friend had sent this information to me. An illness with the potential to take my life and I have never heard of Inflammatory Breast Cancer. As I watched the video, I was shocked. A sense of urgency filled every fiber of my body. I immediately stopped reading emails and began creating this blog.
We are diligently working with the Breast Cancer site to help fund mammograms for women who cannot afford them. But that is not enough. We also have to inform women that getting a mammogram is only part of your staying healthy process. So that you will know your body, you must perform self breast exams and discern when something about your breast just does not look right.
