And, very important, breast examination, because I found my lump first, then I went to a doctor and they found, by the mammogram, taken mammograms and all. And they found it, and it's a half inch tumor. So they remove that and took chemo and radiation, and the whole nine yards. I had to honor to be chosen from our cancer center from Louisiana. Every year they pick one breast cancer survivor to come over here and do the race. I'm just here because they chose me, and it has been seven years that I'm in wondering, I always hare about it, they're having their relay over here. And I've been trying to find how to get here.
