this was so sad, I actually heard it on the radio while I was driving the the funeral of a friends husband, who died of the same kind of cancer. Poor Rove, i admire him so much the way he has always managed to get out there and laugh and spread cheer even though his personal life was tinged with such worry and sadness.
Life is too important to be taken seriously!

My heart goes out to Rove ... Belinda was so young. It goes to show that you have to be so dilegent when it comes to checking your breasts. I did it and discovered a lump. I went off and had a mammogram (I am 35) and an ultrasound. Luckily they did not find anything too sinister. But my doctor told me that if I feel the lump is still there (and not hormonal) then I should get a biopsy on it. She said that the mammogram and ultrasound are not 100% accurate. So I am just waiting for my next TTOM to come and if it is still there then I will jump into action. It is scarey to think about it. :(
