As I sit down to compose this post on Breast Cancer and hormone replacement therapy, I have a lot of thoughts swimming around in my mind about the women I know, women who are close to me and whom I care deeply about. Women with whom I have a long history and many years of experiences and memories. I am thinking about my 49-year-old sister, Amy, and my 23 year-old daughter-in-law, Shirese, my 75-year-old mom, Peg and my 63-year-old wife, Mary.
Any one of the wonderful, loving and beautiful women in my life has a 12% risk of developing breast cancer throughout her lifetime. I am thanking God that none of them have been diagnosed with breast cancer and I pray that none of them will.
