My Sister Has Breast Cancer?

Pam and her daughters

In 2008 I received a phone call from my mother while I was broadcasting at The Fox & Hound in Lubbock.  I couldn’t understand what she was saying so I went outside only to hear her say as she was crying –

“Amy, Pam has been diagnosed with breast cancer.”

I couldn’t wrap my brain around how my sister had breast cancer when there is no family history of cancer.  I didn’t cry on the phone with my mother because she was crying and one of us needed to be strong at that moment.  Instead, I immediately began trying to figure out how we were going to fight this for my sister because she has 3 kids – one of which was only 18 months old at the time.

Later that year and after several rounds of chemo my sister had a double mastectomy and was declared cancer free and REMAINS cancer free!

I tell you this story because I know that breast cancer has touched everyone’s life somehow, someway; a family member, a friend, a co-worker.  The other reason I tell you this story is to explain to you that just because there is no family history of cancer – cancer doesn’t discriminate and it can happen to you or someone you love.
