I met other women

The instructor pulled in a few other people who had experience with breast cancer. And I'll tell you, I was just kind of shocked by the number of women who are concerned about what's happening with their breasts. I met a couple of women that had mastectomies, lumpectomies of some sort, fibrocystic disease that they were monitoring all the time that they had some concerns about. When you have cancer that's been diagnosed, that heightens their awareness and makes them zoom back to the physician to get tested and followed-up on. And then I wanted to start meeting more women with breast cancer.
