About

Pink Lemonade Gal

My story begins on St. Patrickís Day 2005 when I received the news that I had lobular breast cancer.  No symptoms, no family history, no lumpsÖno nothing.  The cancer was diagnosed after a baseline screening mammogram. My gynecologist recommended that I get a picture of my breasts at 35 so when I turned 40 I would have those pictures to compare for any differences in my breasts.  I thought that made sense. Neither one of us thought for a minute that the mammogram would show any cancerous cells!

We were moving back to the Midwest at the time of the diagnosis. We started treatment shortly afterwards. It turned out all the treatments didnít work and I was diagnosed again a few years later.

I created this website because I found from my own experience that people donít always know what to do or say when someone they know is diagnosed with cancer. I found that a lot of other cancer survivors experienced some of the same situations so I thought this site would be helpful to those recently diagnosed or for those who know someone with a cancer diagnosis but donít know what to do or say.

Wishing you health and happiness!
