Prominent internet thinker Xeni Jardin blogs her experience getting her first mammogram, ultrasound and, ultimately, diagnosis.
It is powerful stuff.
It is moving.
It has been experienced by many. But few have captured it in words.
It is something I've experienced only a little part of. I have a couple of odd spots in my breasts. Spots they track. Have tracked for years.
And each time I go for my annual mammogram (this year augmented with an ultrasound) I wonder if these odd harmless spots will stop being so.
So far, so good for me.
These are women warriors. I hope your admiration will join mine.
