My cousin had to have a double mastectomy two weeks ago. The GREAT news is she is doing really well and was back to work on Monday. This is pretty remarkable, to be back to work so soon. I think it is attributed to her extremely positive attitude throughout this entire ordeal.
I felt bad that I was not there with her when she was going through all her appointments, tests, and the surgery. This is when living abroad is hard.
I wanted to do something special for her so she knew I was thinking about her... I made her a bracelet and earrings.
I also made her thank you cards to send to everyone who was so supportive and helpful to her during this very stressful time.
I had so much fun making these. It reminded me of paper dolls, which I loved playing with when I was young.
Don't forget to have your annual mammogram!
Cousin Maria's was ONLY detected thanks to the mammogram. It was too small and too deep for her to have found during a monthly self-exam or for a doctor to have found from a physical exam. I have mine scheduled this Friday!!!
