An IMPORTANT message every woman should know......
An image that could save your life!
It can detect tissue change in the breast 5 - 7 years before mammograms detect any issue. 
It's non-invasive, painless, safe! It uses infrared images - no radiation! 
breast thermography 2

There will be a Thermography clinic at
Be Healthy Institute  in Hamburg on
Wed July 18

My own personal story with Thermography...

A few years ago after a routine mammogram I was found to have micro calcification in one breast. Of course they immediately scheduled me for a core needle biopsy. During this biopsy you are placed on a table face down.The table is raised up so the doctors and nurses can work underneath. The breast is exposed through an opening in the table, anchored by a radiation machine and another mammogram is done to identify the exact spot of the calcification. A large core needle is pierced through the breast to extract the area of calcification. It is most uncomfortable and takes about 40 minutes. Then a chip is inserted into the breast so they can check the area in future mammograms. I would describe it as a barbaric procedure - and it could have been TOTALLY avoided if I had only had thermography first!! My insurance covered a $1,800 procedure - but thermography costs less than $300. When I later had thermography all of my anxiety was put to rest because that simple, painless, fast procedure assured me that any changes in my breast over the next 10 years were most likely to be benign. Thermography can detect so much more about your breast health than a regular mammogram. It is recommended that we have both procedures.

In Precious Memory
Lillian Curcio Campbell
2/17/29 - 6/13/12

My beautiful mother Lillian Josephine Curcio Campbell passed away peacefully at noon on June 13 after a long difficult battle with advanced Alzheimer's. She was serenaded straight to the heavens by her beloved cardinal, who kept a singing vigil outside of her room. We were grateful to be in a beautiful hospice setting where she could be surrounded by all of her children. I would like to share just a portion of the tribute I wrote for her funeral celebration....

Mom I think I need to just give a little time to one of the most painful and difficult aspects of your journey - and our journey too. There came that most difficult time when we moved you to an assisted living facility because you were no longer able to care for yourself in any way - dementia is a demon - advanced dementia is not just about being forgetful - it's dangerous and filled with indignity and loss of even self awareness - and finally it became just too much of a burden for any one person to continue to look out for you. We know this move just broke your heart and it totally broke our hearts as well to see this. There are no words to describe it except to say it was completely devastating for us to watch you - unable to understand and unable to cope. You used every bit of energy you had with your injured and failing brain to threaten us, cajole us, beg us and finally you tapped into your beautiful heart center to just love us as much as any human mother could, in hopes that we'd take you from that place. We knew you prayed during every waking moment for each of us. It was a beautiful facility, bright and cheery with activities and friendly people - but you wanted no part of it. For us it was pure misery to see you fail to thrive, to see you not eat and go quickly downhill. I know now - we all know now, that if it was God's will for you to live, if it was meant for you to go on with life, - you would have thrived there, made new friends and blossomed. Instead - it was your time to begin your journey home. How could we know that this was a divine plan? How could we ever trust that this was what was being asked of you - and of us? What a struggle we have all been through! This was the toughest journey asked of each of us - maybe to examine our values, beliefs and attitudes - regardless of the outcome. Maybe it was a lesson for us to know that we just can't always be in control - no matter how good hearted our intentions. Maybe it was a chance to discover how much we take for granted in life, and how much we need each other. Maybe it was a lesson on learning to be strong and endure the unfathomable in grief and pain. Perhaps it will be over time that we realize this was a lesson in the power of love, of forgiveness - a lesson my mother was a master teacher at! 

I am reminded of the words from Winnie the Pooh:

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but most important thing is, even if we're apart - I'll always be with you.

I would like to think this is the final lesson Lillian left to all of us.


Thank you for the outpouring of condolences, notes, phone calls. I felt so much support and care as I walked this sad and difficult journey. I am grateful that my mom is free and in a better place, but I miss her in a big way!  

Without a doubt, I received my foundation and roots as a wild woman from this beautiful, gallant lady who literally and figuratively danced through life ! ~ Wild Woman   


We shake with joy, we shake with grief.  

What a time they have, these two 
housed as they are in the same body.
