I am glad to hear that your scare was just a scare and nothing more. What is amazing to me is how many of us have suffered from cancer or had a close relative or partner or friend suffer . . . it illustrates sharply what our environments are doing to us.

That's a very nice news! But honestly, if I were in your part, that would be scary for me too. At least now, everybody's happy.

I'm looking forward for your cancer-causing topics in the future. I think it's now time for us to become alert regarding this alarming disease.

What a scare! I am glad you are okay. Cancer can happen to anybody but at least we can do some preventable care like you are doing. Keep preaching. More people need to hear about a healthier lifestyle.


I'm glad that you're okay!I think that our environment and how and what we eat plays such a larger role with so many diseases/sicknesses including cancer. I just wish more people we're AWARE of and educated about this. So many times I think we assume that because it's on the shelf and available to buy that it must be safe. So not the case!

I think it's great that you do the preventative diagnostics to make sure that all was well, and luckily so...

Wow, definitely that was a scare, But it's good to know that you're ok..

Thank you for sharing your experience. Unfortunately, it is such a common occurrence for men and women to go through routine testing and experience the anxiety of waiting for results. Waiting for a week, as you did, is almost unbearable. Thankfully, in your situation, everything was fine. It certainly makes us all realize that we do not have control over everything. Situations like this present an opportunity to reevaluate our lifestyle to see if there is anything we would like to change. Sounds like you are making great choices!


Thanks for the well-wishes everyone! Sometimes a wake-up call is a good thing.

BTW - One of my FB friends mentioned getting a thermogram - which is more detailed than a mammogram and can show you signs of pre-cancer as opposed to simply showing something that is already there. Have any of you heard of this or had it done?

Amber Strocel

I am so glad this was just a scare and nothing more.

I hope that we can make some real change, so that fewer people receive the cancer diagnosis. We deserve better than to live in fear.

So glad it was nothing serious but these kind of things really make you think!

I am so relieved to read that this was a false alarm, and am glad to read a post that I am sure will comfort countless women awaiting test results. One can only hope that our efforts to live healthfully and chemical-free in our daily lives will help to reduce carcinogenic poisons in our environment. Thank you for sharing your story and for your meaningful activism.


A friend of mine has a machine hooked up to her water that can change the alkaline levels. She says that if you constantly drink that type of water, it raises the alkaline levels and can, in a way, "prevent" cancer from growing. She discovered this machine after her mother went through colon cancer...

What do you think about the idea of raising the alkaline levels in our bodies?
