Christmas in August

I went to the Choices young women with breast cancer support group’s Christmas in JulyAugust dinner last night.

Other women’s stories are so important. They position me among a group; an experience I can deeply relate to. As a 35yr old women I sat near two other women my age with one child who’ve also made the decision not to tempt Mz Oestrogen and conceive again. On my other side was a woman who’d finished treatment a year ago, proudly showing pictures of her attractive bald head. There was an active breast cancer advocate who said goodbye to cancer 22 years ago. Plus, the good news story of a women diagnosed 7 years ago who’s fertility kicked back in late 30s allowing her to have the children she wanted (she remains cancer free).
