Humor Me
I was very surprised to find out that women who have undergone mastectomies have certain rights granted under the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998. The US Department of Labor has provided a great summary on their web site. However, the "benefits" they list may be different from those I list below.

Like I’ve said before, me having a bilateral mastectomy is like Don King getting a hair cut – people will notice the change. In the spirit of finding the bright side of things, I present this top ten list. I do offer the following disclaimer: I apologize if this is offensive to anyone or seems insensitive to someone having a difficult time with this surgery. When I posted a top ten list after my hair loss, it helped me laugh in face of adversity. This is no different. So bear with my warped sense of humor and have a chuckle with me today.

10. Finally, the chance to choose fashion over function

9. Busty as I Wanna Be (this time I get to choose!)

8. A new reason to go clothes shopping

7. No more cave man-like posture

6. No more cold looks from flat-chested women

5. No more spots on the tops of my t-shirts

4. The top buttons of blouses actually stay closed

3. No concerns when chilly

2. Two words: Shoulder Relief

1. The men in my life actually notice I have hazel eyes

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
