“When Lorna found the lump in her left breast God began to take her on a 299 day journey. As all who loved and knew Lorna would bear witness to the importance of women to have a mammogram every year, not 2 years. Take the time for yourself and do a self examination every day. 740 women will be diagnosed this year with breast cancer and 160 mothers, daughters, sisters, wives will die”.
