Happy First Birthday! Life After Mastectomy

My mother had her mastectomy March 2010.

March 2011, my son and I were lucky to have her on a vacation to Nickelodeon Hotels. I am glad she came. She almost did not because her job was giving her a hard time about using her accrued vacation days.

Anyway, at the hotel, they were giving away Birthday pins. My mother shouted, “It is my birthday! I am ONE year old!” in celebration of one year of life after her mastectomy. Here is a picture of the pin. I wear it on the scarf she wore in her last moments with us.

Happy Birthday
