YOUR TURN: Breast Cancer Awareness

. -

Air: Friday, 10/23/15

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that topic sparked many comments on our Facebook page this week. Dozens of people reacted to our story about Zachary’s Veronica Waldrop who’s battling the disease herself and at the same time promoting early detection for other women. That story provoked a heartfelt comment from Rhonda Gaston-Allen.

In her words: I was diagnosed with Stage 3B Breast Cancer at age 25. I had just delivered my son who was three months old and the physicians said my cancer had been dormant for a few years without a sign or symptom. I advise any female who has had a child to get a mammogram regardless of your age. Much love to all my sisters in pink. God is good because it's been ten years for me now cancer free. Don't be afraid to be who you are through your battle. I rocked that bald head with hoop earrings proudly.

That’s Rhonda Gaston-Allen’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
