To my fellow FJers,
Some of you may know me, some of you may not. I'm a comic maker (or at least I try) and I've made front page with some posts at points. I've tried to stay as gender ambiguous as possible for discrimination's sake.
But tomorrow at approximately 11:30 am EST, I'm going to be tested for breast cancer. I've experienced quite a few changes over the past few months, and it's been worrying me. I'm very high risk for the disease because of family history (my grandmother was a 4-time survivor, I'm more well-endowed - this has been linked to higher risk, and I possible carry a gene that make it even higher). On Monday, my doctor noticed some irregularities - tenderness, hardness, etc - so it was recommended that I get screening.
Now, I'm terrified for my life, as I'm only 18, but I wanted to share this with you guys because I've seen us all come together in times of need to support our fellow FJers. I've been active on this site for quite a while (I've been coming here since it was yellow, this is my newer account), and I see you guys as my family.
I'll let you guys know how it goes. Don't worry - I won't let no titty cancer get me.
