I attended the AMA Leadership Development Conference in Miami and heard Dr. Bodai speak about his efforts to promote the Breast Cancer Awareness Stamp. On the way home, I purchased the stamps at the Airport Post Office. The following week I received a call from my Physician telling me that my annual mammogram was suspicious and I proceeded to have a needle biopsy. Well, the biopsy showed carcinoma in situ. I had a lumpectomy on April 14, 2000 and am scheduled for additional surgery on May 2, 2000. The point of my story is - I thought that buying the stamps I would help my friends, family, and cancer survivors. But now, in a twist of fate it is also helping me.
Thanks to Dr. Bodai for his wonderful message of hope and compassion.
