Here are several of the "moments" that my talented sister captured of mom.

Changing things up.
As you probably noticed, the picture I had on my header is of my mom. She is currently battling breast cancer. My sister, Jenn, (http://fybphotography.com/) took the picture of her and the pictures proved to be very inspirational. It gave us all the push to fight even harder, including my mom. I used that picture as my blog header because my mom is the reason why I got tested and why I know what I know. If it weren't for her (though it sucks she has cancer) getting cancer, I would have never even suspected I could be at risk. I would have continued on the same path and probably waited until I was 40 to receive my first mammogram. Thank goodness I know, thanks to my mom and the fight she has ahead of her. She took the news very hard that I was positive but I think she realizes now, that me knowing is so much better than not knowing and going down the same road she is right now. She'll begin a very aggressive round of chemo and then have radiation. I am an adult and it is terribly hard to see your mom struggle through something like that, which is why I cannot allow that to happen to my kids, knowingly. If my mom had the choice years ago, I am sure she'd do the same thing.
