add one more to the mix

Either God thinks we are stronger than we think we are (duh)...or he's going to do something huge that satan just doesn't like...
Just got a call from my mom...grandma's sister's (my great aunt) biopsy came back cancer. That brings the grand total of breast cancer diagnosis in my family to 7 (I think). Needless to say I have scheduled an appointment with my GYN to talk about a baseline mammogram at 30. I'd say that's a strong family history...wouldn't you?

oh, and grandma is doing better today. she's more alert and her fever is coming down.

I did the same thing. Insist on one. It can never be too early.

I will be praying for you and your family.

I would say that is a really good idea! We've had BC in our family as well but not 7, and the last one was pretty far removed from me, my great-grandmother's sister. I don't even know what her technical name is!! :)

I'll be praying for your grandma and your great aunt as well.
