My Journey
Guest of Honor
Sharsheret Benefit Luncheon 2009

It was Tuesday, May 28th 2002
For a routine mammogram I was due
I will never forget that look of shock and surprise
As my doctor couldn’t believe what was before her eyes

Breast cancer was not what I had in mind
Colon cancer was more my family kind
How could this happen to a woman like me
Breast cancer is non discriminatory- it knows no boundary

I looked at my husband with tears in my eyes
Begging him to make it go away, as I started to cry
But there was nothing that anyone could do
I began the journey my entire family was forced to go through
