So, as I said a few weeks back; I went to the Doctor.
Because cancers and heart- disease run in my mom’s side of the family; and I do not know my real father, and his medical history; my doctor asked me if I wanted to take a hereditary cancer screening test.
I took it.
My doctor said that the test could determine if there were any hereditary DNA changes, that could increase the risk of me developing cancer later on.
I initially felt disturbed when she asked me about taking this test…also scared. I think really it’s the responsible thing to do for myself, and for my kids. I have to wait another month until I can get the results, but it’s not anything I’m going to worry about, until they tell me I have to.
It’s hard getting older for me for many reasons.
I fight it every day. I also make peaces with it.
