It's all a bit overwhelming for this particular woman who is under 40 years old, has a serious case of breast cancer, and falls outside every breast cancer statistic the research geniuses have ever put out there. So I'm escaping for a couple of days to just go and enjoy myself, turn down the volume and remember why my life is worth saving no matter the cost or what the stupid statistics say.

I'm taking a few days off from the Cancer Culture. There's so much noise in the media right now, what with all the squabbling going on about mammography and whether it's worthwhile in women under-50, how much it costs over a woman's lifetime, whether saving 1 life in 1900 is really worth it, how mammography might actually cause breast cancer in high-risk younger women, blah, blah, blah.
