Well my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1978 and then my aunt a couple of years following that was diagnosed with breast cancer. And then my cousin Renee was diagnosed with breast cancer also, and then my other cousin Audrey was diagnosed with breast cancer. And my sister had just been diagnosed with breast cancer and so I had decided that I needed to do something very quickly, I needed to have my breasts removed, that seemed to be all the doctors', you know, consensus also.
