miracles welcome...

Last week, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Carcinoma, which accounts for 10-15% of all breast cancer. She found out by going in for a soreness she felt in the "other" breast. It's amazing that they caught it so early since she went in for the other's soreness.

Now, the hard part: if you have ILC in one breast, there is a pretty good chance it will show up in the other breast in the future. So, she now has to make a decision whether to have a lumpectomy, removing only the part with the tumor...or a mastectomy, full removal of both breasts.

It's a pretty difficult time for Angie and her whole family. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Angie's taking it pretty hard.
