Here we go again...



My twin sister was recently diagnosed with cancer in the breast. A very mild form of cancer and something very treatable ; chances of recovery are 100%. But still...

I took an appointment this morning to get screened. Breasts are a very touchy subject in our family and with our history, there are no chances to be taken.

We are also transfusion-to-transfusion identical twins ; we shared the same umbilical cord, therefore have the same DNA. If one twin gets something, the other one will inevitably get it. How fun !!

Gleevec party anyone ?

so so sorry to hear about your sister- but glad that it is treatable. I hope that your exam is smooth and yields negative test results.
