    Initial Discovery and Diagnosis of Breast Cancer >

    "I've talked to a lot of women after they are diagnosed, and the big question is 'Why did I get it?' And you almost obsess over that. And maybe that's part of the process, obsessing. But you have to get beyond that. Because you did not do anything. I mean that. I went through the whole process and I did nothing to cause this. That, in itself, is very healing."
