October is “National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” Like many people, I knew someone who suffered from breast cancer. She was my Aunt Margo who died in 1989 at the age of 59. She was my mother’s older sister, and Margo’s death still impacts us today. Cancer of any kind doesn’t just affect the individual who develops it – it affects everyone who loves that person. Fortunately, our society has made great strides in the decades since this issue first came to prominence. It’s no longer a taboo subject, and its victims no longer have to live and suffer in the shadows.
