This week’s W.O.W. comes from my aunt Marge. She underwent an oophorectomy and PBM (prophylactic bilateral mastectomy) a number of years ago while in her 60s.
We made the decision at different times in our lives, and I’m not sure what I would do at your age. I’d like to think that I would make the same decision. I remember Fred’s aunt telling me over the phone when I told her my news about my decision – that I was brave. I demurred and said that a fireman risking his life going into a burning building is brave. I was just decisive and confident. The same goes for you.
Thank you Marge for understanding that everyone makes their own decisions on their own time.
