I've been a regular visitor of Monica's blog these days and three days ago I was visiting her blog and saw her entry about Breast Cancer Awareness Month that takes time this October. While reading the entry, I had made commitment that I would do the entry too, but hey, I was surprised to see that my blog is mentioned there. She's tagging me in, and this will be my first experience to the tag posting game ever...I'm a tag virgin :))
Sadly this month also the month that my family and I found out that my big cousin has been confirmed to have breast tumor of stage 4 :(. She's just started to undergo chemotherapy sessions some days ago.
I haven't heard the rest of the story yet, but from her Mom my Mom found out that she actually had sensed a lump on one of her breasts, but I am not sure either she's too afraid to admit that there's something wrong, or she'd forgotten it because she is indeed a busy career woman and she is also a housewife. I think, it was the beginning of this month that she found out the lump has become bigger than ever when she did manual check by herself. Unfortunatelly when she finally decided to do mammogram -I'm not saying it's too late, but sadly it's already on that stage 4.
I do believe -I am hoping and praying, though I'm scared-, there's still a chance for her to be cured. There's always God and miracles, and whatever happens God knows the best. Right?
Anyhow, I have checked out NBCAM site and found out it has Recipe Corner, that I think it will be good for her, since I know she probably will lose appetite because of the chemo sessions and the distress.
