You Capture-Everyday Things

I'm going to put a little different spin on this week's You Capture. My pictures aren't exactly Everyday Things for me, but everyday, thousands of women across the country receive the frightening phone call.

Hi Mrs. Afterbirth?

Umm, not exactly, there's no L.

We have your mammogram results and Dr. would like us to schedule additional images and an ultrasound.

The freak mode sets in.

Along with insomnia until the day of the tests.

And the pleading with God that you don't have time for this kind of crap.

Until the kind Ultrasound Tech turns the monitor towards you and guesses it's only a cyst.

Common in perimenopausal women.

Exhale!



I'll spare you the up close and personal shots of my left breast covered in ultrasound goop, this is a family blog.

And so readers, I ask for your help in the fight against breast cancer. Energizer is currently a sponsor of the 2010 Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, a series of 15 events across the nation where participants walk 60 miles over the course of three days. As a way to celebrate this, Energizer is donating $1 to Susan G. Komen for a Cure for every new “like” on the Energizer Bunny Facebook page (up to $15,000). That’s right. All you have to do is “Like” the Energizer Bunny! It would be MUCH, MUCH appreciated if you could help spread the word!

Big or small, we need to save them all!

I was very happy to do this as my mother is a 25 year cancer survivor, my aunt is a survivor and my cousin has just finished her therapy and we are praying for things to remain clear. Glad all turned out well for you - now let us find a cure!

I like them on facebook.

I also had a cyst that I had removed from my left breast. It was not cancerous but definitely scary.I was only 22 years old at the time.

Karli said...

Whew! Thank goodness you're OK!

Teresa said...

So glad things turned out okay. It's wonderful that you've turned this into an opportunity to do good!

I did my mammograms last month.

Never easy to get tests done, but once the stress of the results is over, it's so worth the peace of mind!
