In Memory of Ellen

My aunt Ellen died tonight.  She had metastatic breast cancer and it had spread to her liver and lungs – she was 63 years old.  I’m especially sad because her mother, my grandma, died of breast cancer too and it’s such a terrible disease.  In memory of Ellen, I’m putting a public service announcement on my blog: remember to get a mammogram every year.   Maybe someday they’ll find a cure.

  1. Oh Amy, I’m so sorry. Let me know if I can help with anything. If you need a place for Evan to hang out, we’ll be home Saturday and Monday.

  2. Sorry to hear this Amy. Thanks for the reminder that I’ve been putting off making my own annual appointments, I’ll be calling to schedule them on Tuesday.
