A few weeks later there was another letter saying that nearly IIOO.OOO people had written for the booklet and how pleaded you were because tliis meant that several hundred lives would be saved. My life ivas amorg them. My booklet arrived on December 16. Although I had had a complete physical Examination only two weeks befure. 1 de- i cicled to give myself a quick breast examination and get it oil my mind. The first spot I touched revealed a lump. To make I a long story short, within hours I was scheduled for surgery. Even though the tumor was small it was malignant and the breast had to be removed. All further tests were negative but duo to the location of the tumor, radiation was recom- mended and I spent four weeks in another city getting treat- ments. Your column will always have special meting to me. There are no words to express my gratitude. Louise P., Maryland DEAR LOUISE: Your letter was a thrill, and I thank you for it. Not only do I appreciate your sharing such a personal experience, but you have provided me with another opportunity lo remind women to re-read that booklet and use it or it you've mislaid it, write for another.
