  • A tale of a breast cancer survivor

    Breast cancer survivor Lillie Shelburne wrote the following narrative poem in 2005:

    “Breast Cancer Survivor”
    In the fall of 2004, it was time for a mammogram, a yearly chore.
    Our lives are so busy, we hardly find time — we rush in for the films, never looking behind.
