A TRIBUTE TO A WOMAN THAT I WISH I HAD MORE MEMORIES WITH MY ONE & ONLY AUNT


CANCER IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE DEADLIER THEN A LOT OF HOODS. MY AUNT PASSED AWAY FROM BREAST CANCER TOO EARLY TOO SOON. YOU THINK IT CAN NEVER HAPPEN TO SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY TIL ITS TOO LATE. BREAST CANCER STARTS IN THE TISSUE OF THE BREAST. THESE TWO ARE THE COMMON PLACES:
* Ductal carcinoma starts in the tubes (ducts) that move milk from the breast to the nipple. Most breast cancers are of this type.
* Lobular carcinoma starts in the parts of the breast, called lobules, that produce milk. In rare cases, breast cancer can start in other areas of the breast. SOME OF THESE FACTORS ALSO PLAY A ROLE: AGE, GENETICS, CHILDBIRTH IF YOU WERE GIVEN RADIATION AS A CHILD AND ALCOHOL USAGE ETC.
MY AUNT MILLY WAS DENIED A MAMMOGRAM, SHE WAS TOLD SHE WAS TO YOUNG TO HAVE BREAST CANCER, EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS HAVING SYMPTOMS OF A PROBLEM IN HER BREAST AREA. SINCE MY AUNT DIDN'T FALL IN THE AGE FRAME OF 60-65 YEARS OLD THE HOSPITAL SEND HER ON HER WAY. I FOUND OUT MY AUNT WAS SICK FROM MY DAD, HER ONLY SURVIVING BROTHER. I REMEMBER A DISTINCT MEMORY OF MY AUNT (I HAD TO HAVE BEEN FIVE YEARS OLD)IT WAS MY COUSIN MICHELLE BIRTHDAY PARTY. I LET ALL THESE YEARS GO BY WITHOUT SPENDING TIME, SHARING OR MAKING MEMORIES OF MY ONLY AUNT. GOD BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER FOR REASONS, EVEN IF IT SEEMS LIKE THE WRONG REASONS. I DID GET TO SPEND TIME WITH MY AUNT AS HER CANCER METASTASIZED TO OTHER AREAS OF HER BODY. A FIGHTER TO THE END. SHE FOUGHT EVERYDAY NOT TO LEAVE HER BABIES BEHIND AND EVERYDAY THE CANCER WAS WINNING. THERE IS NOTHING WORST IN THIS WORLD THEN TO WATCH SOMEONE YOU LOVE DEARLY SLIP AWAY MORE AND MORE EACH DAY. WORDS OF HER OLDEST SON JOHNNY CRUZ: a video dedicated to our Mom who passed away from breast cancer at an early age (45rys old) and left 7 kids behind. Millie RIP Mom THE LINK TO SEE THE VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/user/Jhans7154 AS TECHNOLOGY AND SCIENCE ADVANCE WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO A CURE FOR CANCER. SO I SAY TO FELLOW READERS, LOVE YOUR FAMILY, LOVE YOUR FRIENDS AND MAKE SURE TIME DOESN'T GET IN THE WAY OF CREATING MEMORIES THAT LAST A LIFETIME.
