    Oh No (Health insurance issue): I was diagnoised a week before my insurance sign up at work, So I had no insurance. I was enrolled in a womens program that funded free mammagrams for women who qualified(which was me) These programs are through out the united states under various names. Part of a foundation that help fund this program was the Susan G. Komen. Medical was taken care of but not my every day expences, so I had to work during my chemo. thus keeping track of various things as medication, appointments, and found other organizations that help get me through.

    Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): I kept busy, healed faster after surgery. Shocked my surgeon when the day came for stapels and drain bag to come out. Got that arm UP!!! I kept working and looking ahead. I did two years of chemo after surgery.
