    I sometimes wonder how we all can write about the damage that cancer does to us so easily...then realize that we are only seeing the black and white words on the screen and not all the blood, sweat and tears that goes into the fight! Keep fighting...

    I'm now on tamoxifen after having difficult side effects with Femara and Arimidex. I was wondering if anyone else had an issue with scar tissue build up in the lumpectomy area? I also had mammosite radiation so that might also have caused some of the scarring. I'm a little nervous as I now have my yearly mammogram and the oncologist wants it to be a diagnostic one with ulstrasound if necessary to see if the "lumpiness" is another cancer issue. Guess it's the new normal to feel nervous at test time?

    My Photo is a sculpture I made for a fund raiser auction in Greer, SC called Tatas on Trade. Mine is called Follow the Yellow Brick Road. It will be auctioned in April in Greenville SC for the ACS.

Gotta love 'em.
