Hello, everyone. My name is Kathy. I live in Boston, MA. I have a wonderful family; a son and a daughter and two lovely grandchildren. I enjoy reading, the visual and performing arts, (we have so many wonderful museums and so much great theatre in Boston). I think most of all, I enjoy music. Most genres, but KEEP the rock LOL. I guess I can't call myself a newbie on SS anymore. It's been a few years now. There are so many superb singers here on SingSnap. I know I'm far from that, but everyone at every level has made me feel welcome. Thank you so much everyone.
I think it's important to share information that could impact the lives of others. In April of 2010 I was diagnosed with Stage One breast cancer. Fortunately (because I have regular mammograms) it was found very early and my chances of a complete recovery are very, very good. I want to thank Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and the extraordinary physicians there for helping to make my personal catastrophe bearable by FAST, EXPERT care and terrific follow up care.
LADIES, There is NO history of breast cancer (or any other kind of cancer) in my family. I'm living proof that you cannot hide your head in the sand and say "Oh well, there's none in my family, so I'm safe."
HAVE YOUR MAMMOGRAMS! IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.
Take good care all and have a happy and healthy 2013.
