THE STORY:

Alyson Yost wrote -

This is our first year for the "Bowl Down Breast Cancer" fundraiser. This fundraiser is a way to honor my mother and all those who are fighting and have fought Breast Cancer. This October 2016 will be 4 years since my mom, Kathie, was diagnosed with Stage IV Lobular Carcinoma of the Breast. Everyday continues to be a blessing. Kathie's Story: A few years ago my mom was having a surgery unrelated to her diagnosis and the surgeon told us they found breast cancer cells in another part of her body. She was someone that went for her mammograms yearly without any issues and doctors never felt any masses or lumps. When we heard this news we were confused and devastated. My mom has dense breasts and what we didn't know is that sometimes with dense breasts, abnormalities can't be picked up with mammograms alone. We learned from this and continue to spread the word about dense breasts and what it really means. In 2013 a bill was passed making it mandatory to alert those who have dense breasts so they can have a discussion with their physicians. Today thanks to modern medicine they have made it possible to live longer with some kinds of stage IV breast cancer. Looking at my mom you wouldn't know she lives with this horrible disease. Unfortunately, we face the reality that there is no cure for my mom's cancer but she continues to live each day to the fullest. My mother is a true hero and inspiration because through the surgery, the diagnosis, the treatment, she has been so positive and keeps a strong faith. My mom tells me I do all the worrying for her. She has a great group of friends and supporters through her journey and without all of you I don't where we would be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the thoughts and prayers, the wonderful care from the doctors and nurses at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, the generous donors to help those affected in Pennsylvania by this awful disease, and of course the P.A. Breast Coalition for their continued support. I am hopeful that one day soon they will find a cure. ~Alyson Yost
