|SUE - a breast cancer survivor||
I am now retired but I continue to read, research, and learn. I was asked why bother to keep working on this and my answer is simple.... We aren't there yet! I can walk away from the job but I still need answers and cancer is still here and I have previous patients that I continue to care about and people contacting with new beginnings into this strange world of breast cancer and I still need to continue my own track as I am not in treatment but must remain vigilant and pro-active in pursuing my health. I continue self breast exams and my mammograms and any other teststhatmay be required.
