My sister-in-law Sonia Mansfield – a former writer for the Examiner – is being treated for ductal carcinoma in situ, which is very hard to spell and sounds pretty ominous.
In fact, it’s an early form of breast cancer. They got it early and she expects to be fine. She wrote about it on her very entertaining blog, in the name of getting the word out and encouraging women to get checked. Which I can attest to, as I wouldn’t have discovered I had diabetes a few weeks ago if I didn’t take the very unusual step (for me) of getting a physical. Then I’d still be feeling crappy instead of getting medication, changing my bad habits (mostly), and letting it get worse.
