There are a few words women use to describe their experience with breast cancer. A journey, a war, a battle, a fight. For me it is anything but a journey! As a dear friend said, most journeys are pleasant or at least have a pleasant ending. I viewed the adoption process as a journey, despite its rollercoaster ride and ups and downs, I would end up becoming a mummy. My experience with breast cancer I view as a fight, a battle or as another friend said something to "wage war on!"
Out of interest I have made a poll where I invite you to vote, there is no email required here, so we can see how readers would view their battle with breast cancer.
