  14. Oh, Erika, I'm so sorry! I do know exactly how you feel - my mom told me a few years ago that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and I saw stars. I've never had a physical reaction like that to any kind of news before or since. But the good news is that your right - caught early, it's a piece of cake. Are they just doing radiation and a lumpectomy? That's what my mom had to have, and it really wasn't as scary as you would think. Hugs to you and your mom!

  16. Though its a scary time and I can't begin to imagine the range of emotions that both you and your mom must be going through, your strength and postive thinking will certainly see you through! You are inspiring to others and that energy will return back to you in your time of need.

    Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovering .. xo HHL

  33. Oh Erika {{{HUGS}}}} so sorry to hear about your mom. Good thing I think is that I've known quite a few breast cancer survivors and one friend's mom who also had skin cancer and breast cancer, and she's been cancer free for I think at least 10 yrs. now. So I hope there's some encouragement for you. Best of luck.
