Today's scoop post is actually for those of you who have not had breast cancer. I pray that you never will encounter the beast. However, at some point in your life you may be faced (or may already have faced) a "cancer scare."
I ran across this article and felt that it was so well written. I want to share it with you today because I really feel that the author captured the following aspect of breast cancer so well...just because you find a lump or have a suspicious mammogram does not mean that you are going to die.

If you have a suspicious mammogram, take some deep breaths. Try not to panic. (I know it is easier said than done.) But I am telling you from experience: panic, fear, and worry only make the situation worse. Focus on the facts, the things that you know, and take things one step at a time.
