Sandy: Well, I came down with cancer in 2000, so I’ll be out eight years. And I had a lumpectomy and it's in stage one, which I was lucky but it had spread to the lymph nodes, so they had to remove the two lymph nodes. Then I'm doing great, I'm doing real good. Thank you. What advice do you have for other women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer? Sandy: So you need a lot of support from your families. And jus stay busy, don’t – I was working at the time and there was a lot of days I went in and I was so sick, I just sit down and feel like being there, but I did. And I just had a lot of support from all my co-workers and my family. And I had friends that will call me up and say you're not sitting at home, you're going out. That’s the good main thing and then that will help you to have an open mind and not feel sorry for yourself.
