After weeks of crying, worrying, planning - yes, I was figuring out who I wanted to have what and writing letters to my children and grandchildren all the things one does when your expecting to die. Listen to me, all the things one does, like it happens frequently - Wow!
Some of you know my mammogram and initial study came back positive for IBC, Inflammatory Breast Cancer, a very aggressive form of cancer. It shows up as very swollen, thick skin, dimpled, red and warm. I had every symptom, therefor, I assumed the worst. I didn't hear anything that was said about think positive. IBC has 3 stages: 3A, 3B and 4. I was ready to fight but eventually die and I "knew" it.
A test was performed by the surgeon and I did not have IBC, I had no cancer at all! I put myself through living hell for something I didn't even have! There were lessons to be learned and to pass on. I need to be vigilant about my body and health, also I need to live life to the fullest right now!
Woman read this part carefully, men read this for your women - mothers, daughters, significant others:
Breast self exams need to be performed often. Any, even the slightest, change in your breast needs to be seen by a physician! This form of breast cancer is found often by changes on the outside. Check for lumps, bumps and changes. Make sure you get your mammograms as needed - usually every year. This cancer disease has taken enough of our precious women, men and children already

Here are some hand and nail care tips that Trind has shared with us;
Manicure Tips From The Pro's at Trind:
Use Trind's Acetone free Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover, even if you're not wearing any nail polish. This removes any grease or residue, so your polish will adhere better and last longer.
To push back cuticles, soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes. Pushing back cuticles should not be painful. Never cut your cuticles with scissors.
While filing your nails, you can check your progress by running your nails down a pair of old nylons. If nails snag, you have additional buffering to do.
Use the patented Trind Professional Glass Nail File to give fast, professional results. The laser grit files and seals the nail at the same time for smooth and healthy finish.
Start with the Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam for moisture, then use base coat to prepare nail plate properly. A base coat also helps protect and maintain the strength of nails.
Give nails 1-3 minutes of drying time between coats. This gives a nice even sheen and lasting finish.
Apply many thin coats of polish rather than one thick coat. It will dry quicker and last longer.
Apply nail polish like a professional. Take a small amount on the brush, and apply one stroke down the center of the nail. Then apply strokes on the left and the right. Do not use more nail polish. One brush dip should equal three strokes of application. Allow 1 minute for polish to set before applying the next coat. Or better yet, wait 3 minutes for best results.
Always apply a clear top coat only after polish is completely dry to the touch.
Part of the preventive maintenance of the manicure is touching up the top coat. Don't forget to apply base coat, nail polish, and top coat across the nail edge too. This helps seal the ends and prevent chips.
