Is there any woman on the planet who gets regular mammograms and doesn’t take a deep breath before she opens the envelope from the cancer center with the results? Or, if a radiologist is on site to read the mammogram in real time, is there a woman alive who doesn’t take a deep breath when the door opens and the technician comes in to give the all clear — or not?
I’ve been getting mammograms for years, decades. All good so far. All good again yesterday, when I opened the envelope.
Life can change in a nanosecond. But not this time, not for me.
