People often associate breast cancer with a secondary diagnosis: lymphedema. Not everyone who has lived with breast cancer will develop lymphedema, and nowhere near everyone with lymphedema has (or has had) breast cancer.

Several months ago, as I was driving to work, I came over a small hill in a light morning rain to see a small truck, steam pouring from the engine, crushed around a telephone pole in a ditch. I pulled up several yards past the accident scene and over to the side of the road, putting on my hazard lights and grabbing my cell phone.
