Advice for women who were recently diagnosed: Now Breast Cancer is not a death sentence. When detected early can be cured 100%!!!!

Any other information you want to add? In 1990 I lost my mother to Breast Cancer. Back then they had no early detection in our area. Only ten years later I was diagnosed; technology had grown so much that I was blessed to be able to go to Ochsner in New Orleans which had an ultrasound machine that was only one of three in the south. This is what saved my life and awareness to me to make sure I went for my yearly checkups.
