Peace and Love and Cancer

Mom is worried she has breast cancer. She’s been worried about this before: there’s a lump in her breasts that hurts, but multiple doctors over the years have all said is just an inflamed gland. She knows this, but is still worried. And I’m not going to tell her not to worry, because cancer is fucking serious. Right now, though, we know nothing and panicking isn’t going to make anything better. So, I’m spending the evening talking her off the ledge, so to speak, and pulling up free mammogram services in Baltimore.

Tonight, I leave you all with a link for free women’s cancer services in Baltimore for the uninsured, a reminder for all my lady friends to get themselves checked out – whatever their age or income be – , and a general wish for Peace and Love to all.

About Morgan Maria D'Isidoro

Morgan Maria D'Isidoro has lived in Baltimore, MD for most of her life, saving a handful of failed escape attempts. Given the murder rates, she'll probably die here too. Morgan is a writer of speculative fiction and poetry, a musician of dubious quality, cat aficionado, art history fangirl, kitchen sorceress, recovering pyromaniac, accomplished liar, and an all around person of questionable employability.

  1. Wow, I am a photographer and spent a weekend in Balitmore last summer. I have a similar picture, seeing the image reminded me that I had forgot about it. Cheers to standing in the same space.
