For My Grandmother

******Great news~~ the day of her surgery she was told it was not cancer and was just a mass of scar tissue from radiation, they removed it and she was home the same day!!!!!! Amen!******While my grandmother was visiting for her 85th birthday party she found a lump on her breast. Seven years ago she had undergone radiation for breast cancer. She has had no problems since, but when she went back to florida they looked at the lump and said it is breast cancer. Recommendation lumpectomy or possibly a mastectomy. Scary many reasons. I at the same day she was having her evaluation got called back for a diagnostic mammo and ultrasound because the radilogist did not like the way my yearly mammo looked. My second mammo came back with a benign cyst. So, inspired by these I made this pretty lariat. A reminder to do a yearly mammo and regular breast checks. Visit the Komen foundation for more info.
