One Year Later

One year ago today, my mom had a mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer a few weeks before hand. By her request, we kept pretty quiet about her breast cancer- she's a strong woman and not the type that wants a lot of sympathy.

Seems like yesterday that I was sitting in the waiting room during her surgery. Goog kindly suggesting that maybe I should have been the one getting a strong done of chill pills before the surgery.  My dad drifiting off to sleep because he apparently wasn't that interest in my People magazines or what crazy antics Britney Spears was upto.

It has been a long road, but a year later, Mom's doing great. The surgery, the chemo, the radiation- that is all SO 2010. She's even rockin' a cute little short hairdo.

My momma- Easter 2011
For my friends out there going through this battle right now- stay strong and stay positive. You'll have ups and downs, but just remember it gets better.
