BETTY DUNHAM

Shirley Mays Chardonnay 2005 - Ten years ago, my mother called me with news no child ever wants to hear - "I have cancer".

In 1995, Betty Lawrence Dunham discovered an indentation in her right breast. An immediate diagnosis of lobular cancer was made. Her left breast was clear but this type of cancer often appears or "mirrors" in the other breast. Putting vanity aside, she courageously chose to have both breasts removed.

My mom will celebrate her 82nd birthday and 60th wedding anniversary this year as a cancer-free survivor!
