Another side to cancer

Full story: LA Daily News

Ebony Steele, radio co-host of Dallas-based "Rickey Smiley Morning Show." It was after her fourth biopsy in as many years - her left breast so disfigured her reflection brought her to tears - that Rene Syler considered a double mastectomy.

I agree, that all woman should take very good care of themselves because us as woman suffer from one big illness called cancer. Of course, it's something very delicate and woman should not be too ignorant to go to the doctor and check themselves once in a while. This is a serious case that should be announce to everybody. What i truly believe is that right now we should not be worrying on how to cure the cancer, but how to prevent it. Although it can be heritary there can still be a way to protect the breast from getting cancer.

Thank you! Thank you for what you're doing. I'm not black but I've had breast cancer, and the difficult outcomes for so many black women (and men) is very distressing to anyone aware of the issue.

I don't know if your openness will increase the research on this issue, but maybe you will help more black women to do more self exams, look at their family history, get mammograms and start talking honestly and openly about this very serious issue.

God bless you.
