You never think it's going to happen to you!

But it has. I have breast cancer. I really thought that I would get away without it. Two of my sisters had breast cancer but I still wasn't worried. When the call back came for a follow-up mammogram, I still wasn't worried. I have breast cancer. Luckily I did the genetic testing and I don't carry the gene but I have two daughters to be concerned about.

I have decided to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction (much smaller) followed by chemotherapy. The thing that really bums me out is that this is the second Summer in a row that has been ruined by a medical issue. No swimming or kayaking for me. I can still walk but have to keep it smooth and not bouncy.

I'll still be around Sparkpeople. I'm not going to let this be an excuse to cut loose.

I never thought it would happen to me, but it did.
