    We Do Not Know Yet

     My sister turned 40 a few months ago. Today she went for her very first mammogram. They want her to have a biopsy by next week. I am scared for her. All I can do is worry about it.

    My 31 or 32 year old sister called us on my

    birthday last year to tell us she had cancer. She's always had issues with blood clots on her brain, a miscarriage, and general bad issues. But ovarian, breast, and uterus cancer all at once are really tough on her. She's still fighting it and there isn't much they can do...
