Poster Girl

I'm a poster girl for annual mammograms. Despite having only one minor risk factor, I practiced monthly self exams and never found a thing. My annual mammogram seven years ago, though, showed a tumor so small I couldn't even feel it when I knew exactly where it was. This extremely good radiological call is, I'm convinced, part of the reason my breast cancer journey was relatively easy.
The terrific support and top notch medical care I received in this remarkable community have been there every step of the way for me and I am grateful beyond description.
Please, do your exams and get those mammies grammed!

I am proud to tell the world that Liz is a true friend and survivor, the world would be a darker place indeed without her. I am sad to say that my mother did not win her battle with breast cancer nor my wife with bone cancer. Liz...thank you.

Liz- a model for strength and vision. Someone to look up to and admire. What a veteran!

There she is - my best friend I never met. Liz and I have been email buddies and soul sisters for years now but haven't met. Well at least not on this plane. I only wish this picture were in color so that we could all see that lovely red hair!

Liz, So glad you came through everything okay. You have so much to offer the world, and you've certainly enriched my life by being part of it, even if mainly just through email!! Yeah, I would have liked to see the picture with the bunny ears. . .
