Mom's last day at the spa marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By Ernest Disney-Britton

Today is my mom's last day at the spa! Eight emotion-filled weeks ago we began calling the Cancer Center at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, "the spa" because... it was better than saying "Cancer Center." In June, she was diagnosed with Stage 2a Breast Cancer, and after the lump was removed, she began weekly Chemotherapy treatments.  Each Friday cancer cells were destroyed to keep the cells from further multiplying but in the process, healthy cells were also affected. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and today is my mom's last day at the spa.
