I am a 79-year young cancer Survivor Loving Life! I was faced with breast cancer (carcinoma, malignant tumors) on more than one occasion. Although I went many rounds with this menace of diseases, I won the battle by praying and staying close to God (my Lord and Savior), having God fearing Doctors, and gaining the support from my loyal family and friends.
"My mother died of breast cancer when I was five. Whenever I saw friends or relatives diagnosed, it was always like, 'Oh, God. That could be me.' It was always in the back of my mind. I worried about it all the time. It was almost to the point where I was afraid of talking about it at all." Eileen
At any age, African American women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are more likely to die from the disease than are white women. The researchers also propose that greater exposure to estrogen-containing products could explain why breast cancer is more lethal among African-American women.
