- Today is certainly a brighter day. The tissue expanders are certainly still tight, but the back pain and the pain shooting down my arms are gone. I'm more mobile today. This is a good thing. An interesting note about the expanders. They don't really expand into a breast shape. It is hard to estimate what size I am right now at 480 cc's. It just looks like really buff pectoral muscles. Water, or saline solution, takes the path of least resistance. That path doesn't seem to be breast shape. This process is very interesting.

- I read an alarming statistic yesterday from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, "Worldwide, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for women aged 15 to 64. Every 27 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone's mother or sister is diagnosed with breast cancer. Every 77 seconds, a life is lost to the disease." We have come so far, yet we have so far to go.

- It is pink and white m&m time again. When you see the special 8 ounce bags of pink and white m&m's, remember that 50 cents from each bag is donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I have seen them at a couple of stores including Target.

Hope it's a great day for you. Go out and make a difference today. Y

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.
