I've been on these boards for years and mostly stick to the Community Board because its so much fun. I was here when there was only 1 board and a few of us would now and then get "off topic" and Peter would have to steer us in the right direction.

I am reading the thread about Breast Cancer touching our lives and it hits me as I reply. Sort of like in the cartoons when a giant hammer hits the character.

A few years ago, I am reading Sylvia's thread about her breast cancer coming back and her urging us to be checked. Having a mother die from breast cancer I am well aware of the possibility I could get it also. I read her message and know it's been 4 years since my last mammogram. I email her, she responds, she urges me to go now and be checked. Because of her mail, I make the appointment that I have put off for years. Everything is OK, but the nurses and techs know my history and tut tut me. I tell them I'll make sure and come by more often.

I email Sylvia and tell her because of her I am back on track and she's happy that I have gone back for testing.

It still amazes me how people - especially those on these boards touch our lives. I still feel sad about Sylvia even tho I didn't meet her. Those pics that Dan posted made her so real to me. That poor little Nick. It's funny, when I replied to her and told her I too am a Nick's mom. My Nick is 20 now.

Thanks for listening.
