Recently she discovered a small lump in her breast and decided to have it checked out. She’s so glad she did — doctors caught her cancer early.

“I was having a little bit of discomfort in kind of my armpit area and I stumbled upon a small lump,” she said.

A friend shared her breast cancer story and “that encouraged me to get it checked.”
