4: Facebook Official

I work in health care. In addition to the radiologist who read my mammogram and performed the ultrasound and biopsy, my co-workers would be reading my imaging studies. This is not something I was going to be able to hide. What was private information was soon going to be very, very public.

So I decided to just get it over with and tell everyone. That way, everyone would have the same information. I emailed my immediate family (some of whom don't use Facebook), and then posted this. There was an outpouring of support and encouragement. I will forever be grateful for that.
