Washington, USA: My First Biopsy

Several years ago while doing a monthly breast exam at home, I found a lump. This wasn’t exactly new to me, because ever since puberty, I pretty much have had benign lumps come and go.

As my doctor once told me, I’m “lumpy.” (What a morale boost for a young woman!).

So when I found this lump, I didn’t panic.

It was a week before my son’s 2nd birthday, and I had a lot of other things to take care of. I assumed I’d be in and out of my doctor’s office with the same “not a big deal” feedback I’ve always received. (more…)

Tara Bergman (USA)

Tara is a native Pennsylvanian who moved to the Seattle area in 1998 (sight unseen) with her husband to start their grand life adventure together. Despite the difficult fact that their family is a plane ride away, the couple fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and have put down roots. They have 2 super charged little boys and recently moved out of the Seattle suburbs further east into the country, trading in a Starbucks on every corner for coyotes in the backyard. Tara loves the outdoors (hiking, biking, camping). And, when her family isn't out in nature, they are hunkered down at home with friends, sharing a meal, playing games, and generally having fun. She loves being a stay-at-home mom and sharing her experiences on World Moms Network!
