Self Breast Exams Matter

Story submitted by Alicia Cave
Evansville, IN

I am a 9 year breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed when I was 41 years old, no history of breast cancer in my family. Without the support of my husband, mother and three wonderful sisters, I couldn’t have come through the ordeal as positively as I did. I found the lump myself and it was not detectable on mammogram. At diagnosis, I had one lymph node of 21 that had micro-metastasis. Don’t let anyone tell you that self-breast exam doesn’t save enough lives to matter. It saved mine and it has mattered to me and my family and friends.
