My name is Karen; at 41, I had it all! An incredible husband and 2 wonderful children: my son, 10, and daughter, 8.

About 5 years ago, I had a minor renovation done to my upper half…when I scaled back “the girls.” While the girls had served me well starting in high school (with an extra large cheerleading sweater to show for it)…I just wasn’t interested in toting around D+ sized weights on my shoulders for the rest… Continue Reading »

My story began last June. I went in for my routine yearly check up with the gynecologist. My doctor thought she felt “something.”  She said, “Well, you are 40, let’s get you in for a mammogram.” I had two cysts when I was 30 and again at 36 so I really was not concerned about… Continue Reading »
