Woman's faith keeps her strong in fight against breast cancer

(Continued)

PALESTINE — Early Detection

The best defense against breast cancer is self-breast exams and mammograms, Lee said.

“I believe it’s easier to do the self-breast exams when you lay down versus in the shower. Early detection is the key. If in the event of a diagnosis and the ‘c’ word, just be prepared to fight.”

Lee knows fighting cancer is tough, but believes the Lord will be beside her every step of the way.

“I hope I never get it again but I know it will be OK. We can’t understand everything in life. We may question, but I keep going back to the truth — He’ll never leave or forsake me,” Lee said.
