Hardin shares her story hoping to help someone else

(Continued)

Martha stressed the importance of having an annual mammogram. Thanks to having hers, the cancer was found early.

"I would suggest to women that they take someone with them to their mammogram appointments to keep them company while waiting and to be there for support if needed," said Martha. "Just sitting there waiting can be scary."

Chastity, who works at St. Vincent Anderson as a medication access coordinator, has taken her mom to all of her appointments, mammograms and even family doctor visits since her mother's follow-up mammogram three years ago. "I think it’s good to have a second set of ears," said Chastity.

"It sounds strange but the cancer actually strengthened my faith," said Chastity. "It made me realize how strong my mother is. I was able to see her strength. I did some serious praying for my mother and God answered our prayers."

Invasive (or Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) This is the most common breast cancer. It starts in the cells lining a duct, breaks through the wall of the duct, and invades (grows into) the tissue of the breast. From there it is able to spread (metastasize) to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body. IDC accounts for about 8 out of 10 invasive breast cancers.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Peace is worth fighting for Some people say they know how to find peace. We should “simply” follow our hearts, search for meaning in our lives, and fulfill our dreams. Sad to say, those things may bring us a bit of satisfaction, but they certainly don’t bring us peace.
