I do agree,Angelina jolie diagnosis could have been used better to educate the public,there is a lot of awareness out there these days but people still don't have better understanding of the disease. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with no family history of breast cancer, people think because I have gone though chemo and radiation that I am cured,I tell some that so far there is no cure for breast cancer,some people think just keeping a positive attitude will keep you cancer free.

I face a double mastectomy on Monday. Angelina's courage gives me courage also. I'm 77yrs. old and this is my first cancer, 3 cancers in one breast.
