Pink Ribbon.


breast-cancer-ribbonLast week during a yearly exam, my doctor found a lump in my breast. I was immediately panicky and nervous. A what? I told my doctor that I felt as though I was going to panic. She promptly responded, “One thing that I have learned in life is never to panic.”
I can always remember quotes that strike me. Over the past week, I have been ignoring the fact that I was scheduled for an ultrasound to make sure that all was well. I confided in a few close friends and they comforted me like they always do. My sweet Mommy acted normally. She showed no worry. She showed only strength. This morning, I did find myself antsy as time for the appointment drew nearer. My wait of thirty minutes seemed like an eternity. Everywhere I looked I saw beautiful pink banners that read, “Find the Cure.” Two bubbly and hilarious nurses made me comfortable during the exam, and one even joked about seeing Ronald Regan in an ultrasound that she had done the pervious week. I asked her did she see a millions of dollars in mine. She laughed at me hysterically.  I tried my best not to shake as they finally found the lump, and explained that since it had movement, this was normal. Also, I thought lumps would be easily found. It took the ultra sound specialist almost twenty minutes to find mine. I asked them could it be a lump found commonly in African American women within my age range, and their eyes had lit up, impressed with my research. Fibroadenoma is what they call in doctor lingo. There is this negative stigma connected to lumps in the body. Most of our minds click to Cancer. I had never heard of lumps in the breast being normal. But today, I am very happy that they are. The reason I share this is because I saw maturity in myself today. I almost cried while waiting for my name to called, but I would always say a prayer  or shake off any negative emotions. I want to do a breast cancer walk. Not every woman receives such great news as I did today. God is good. My optimism is strong and will not be shaken.
