One thing that I can say about my husband is that he loves me in sickness and in health. That was one part of our wedding vows that I knew he truly meant and would uphold without him evening having to say it. He’s nursed me through the flu twice, food poisoning, morning sickness and a slew of common colds. He’s even gotten sick a few times because he was nursing me back to health.
And when he found out that breast cancer runs pretty common in my family, I will have you all know that every so often he checks in to make sure that I am doing my daily breast exams. Not only that but he also went so far as to get cancer insurance with his job. “Better safe than sorry,” he said. Now, to me that’s real love.
I just want to say that if you aren’t encouraging your spouse to take measures to prevent breast cancer then you should start today. Don’t wait for a doctor to stumble across it or for them to get sick.
