Daynee - A Relief...

I felt a lump in my right breast at the end of the summer. I thought little of it. I had had such things in the past and they had amounted to nothing. Besides, my next mammogram wasn’t due until October... Click here for the rest of Daynee's story.

Jim - A Husband's Story

Everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing when something traumatic happens. For me, I was at work and I pulled my truck over (Ironically at the building behind Cancer Patient Care) on January 15th 2008 at 1:37 in the afternoon when my cell phone rang. It was my wife. The words “It is cancer, Jim” will haunt me for the rest of my life.  Click here for the rest of Jim and Rhonda's story

Therese - Forever Grateful

They told me my life will never be the same after cancer. My life changed March 5, 2007. I was at work when the call came. The biopsy was positive for Invasive Ductal Carcinoma of the left breast. Funny, you don't know how you'll react until you hear it.  Click here for the rest of Therese's story
