" A couple of weeks before leaving for our Cruise to Panama, I was lying in bed one morning and felt pain in my left breast, and found a lump. Can you imagine what went through my mind? I got up and got ready for work. That morning I called my doctor’s office and he was on vacation, but they got me in with another doctor. Immediately I was set up for a mammogram at the hospital. "
