Just a quick note today.  It's been a weird couple of days.  My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer on March 31st, yes the day before April Fools day.  She actually called people to tell them her diagnosis on April Fools day. 

Anyway, she's had 4 rounds of chemo and had her last treatment a couple of weeks ago. (She let me give her a mohawk when she lost her hair) This round has been especially un-kind to her and she's been feeling pretty yucky.  News from the doc yesterday was that she would go on to have 6 weeks of radiation. Boooo!!  That wasn't supposed to happen.  But, it's a better safe than sorry kind of thing. 

 I've been tossing this idea around since she was first diagnosed and I finally got it done.

It's what I like to call a "Rack Plaque".
I wanted something other than the usual ta-ta's or boobies.  Not only is it a good reminder to get your yearly mammogram, but it's going to double as a wig/scarf holder for my mom.

I took it over today to cheer my mom up and she loved it. The only way that we make it through tough situations is with laughter.  Wait until you see the cards that I'm making. Stay tuned....
