When You Have Breast…

When You Have Breast Cancer

Friends rush in for overdue
mammograms, even the ones who were
resisting going at all,
afraid of what theyd find.

Husbands are kinder to their wives,
hold them tight at night,
seeing a future without them.

It can make you cranky;
this should be about you,
but now its also about them.

You let it go.

May something good come of this 
more check-ups and kisses.
We should all be kinder to ourselves,
to each other.

  1. Wishing you the best as you go through treatment. I’m about to turn 40 & have my first mammogram scheduled for next month.
