A Beginning

Sitting around the game table on any ordinary Sunday evening, she stares at her cards in her right hand while she lays her left hand across her chest.  How should I play this hand? Her fingers brush against her collarbone and she notices something else there.  A lump.

So starts a story to which at present has no end.  Only the beginning of appointments, tests, tears, the unknown.  What will this journey bring?  Hope, faith, strength, love and a stronger bond than this already close-knit family could have.

I hope everything turns out well. Always remember to be a patient advocate for yourself and ask as many questions as you need to to feel comfortable with the situation. Much love sent your way!

I've had lumps (multiple places) that turned out to be nothing but swollen glands. So try to not worry because it really could be nothing. I hope everything turns out ok!

Sending my thoughts and prayers your way. I've had lumps removed in my breasts and it can be very scary. I hope everything turns out OK.

You are in my thoughts.

Remember that it is okay to ask for help and there are no such thing as silly questions (especially when it comes to your health).
