    Procedure or Surgery: Mom lived in Jamaica, Caribbean. she had a lump in her breast, it was removed. They told her it was not cancer. It came back, again it was removed. It came back and they removed her breast. She never got any treatment - chem, radiation...nothing. She came to live with me in New york, LI, June 2007, she showed me a lump under her arm....right-a-way, I took her to the hospital....diagnosis...stage 3 breast cancer. She passed 2009. I missed her so badly....I cry every day...and cannot get out of being depressed.
    We tried everything, chemo, radiation etc....nothing help.
    I am doing a breast cancer walk-a-thon in Jamaica, on 10/23/2100 in her memory and in the spirit of saving lives in Jamaica, Caribbean.

      Good for you, doing the walk in your mom's memory. Do positive things to remember her, to celebrate her life and the love you two share.
      I do the Pink Posse 3 mile walk annually to celebrate all who have been touched by cancer and those who love them and support them. I too am a breast cancer survivor.
      Maybe your mom's journey will bring needed improvments to the cancer care in her home country. Her memory will live on in the lives she saves by you her daughter walking and making others aware of the issues/needs of all cancer, especially breast cancer.
