this past week my mom-in-law and my sister's sister-in-law were diagnosed with breast cancer. Can you believe this crap? My Mom-in-law is severly overweight. 300+ ... so surgery is out of the question since she has heart problems. She has known about this for a couple of months now but we just found out this past week. She will not do chemo because she watched Tony's father die from leukemia. So... not looking good. She is going the Susan Somer's route. All herbal products. She is a Cherokee Indian and several medicine men are praying for her. Hopefully the mass will shrink.
My sister's sister in law had a lumpectomy on Friday. On Sat. my brother in law (her brother ) called me telling me that she has 3+ positive nodes and that they could not remove the entire tumor. She insisted on trying to save her breast and I am only guessing but that might be where they ran into trouble. Steve is going to find out more this week and let me know.
Please keep them both in your prayers.
