I remember the Ann Jillian movie too.
Living in Green Bay, I have been watching Brett Favre's wife's story. She is 35 and just underwent a lumpectomy. She will not do chemo and radiation. It is amazing how closely his life and my husband and I's have become. His father died last year about 2 months after my father in law and now his wife is dealing with breast cancer, like me! It truly knows no bounds in choosing who will fight the battle.
It really helps me to see and hear stories like these. Hope and courage!
