My dad told me that after 4 miscarriages, and a baby that only lived for 3 days, him and my mom tried again and I came into the world about a month early then when I was supposed to come out. I had to stay in some machine thing at the hospital for a month and a half. All I can say is wow! Why me though? My mom had breast cancer, well she had the tumor, it was caught early but after she got it removed the doctors want to do chemo for her to make sure that the cancer won't come back. She already cut her hair short because she doesn't want long hairs falling out everywhere. I honestly know little to nothing about cancer and those who are fighting it. I really thought I wasn't gonna be in those situations alot of other people get themselves into but here I am feeling nervous and scared.. But should I be scared if my mom is getting chemotherapy? Doesn't it help her? She has to do it for 2 or 3 months, so there goes any traveling over the summer, but it's alright it's for my mom d-(n__n)-b This is all just really odd for me. I don't really know how to react to any of this. I'm scared for myself too, what if breast cancer is hereditary? My mom's mother and 2 sisters died from it and now my mom has it.
