Risk Factors

Although it is good to know risk factors, one can still get the short end of the stick so to speak.  I have no genetic markers for it, a healthy overweight (thanks largely to fibro), and although I don’t run or do intense work outs, I do have to move and stay active in some way because of my fibro and yet I still got breast cancer.  I was an extremely low risk for it, yet I got it and when I did, I got one that would not respond to targeted hormone treatments and was super aggressive.  I am responding to chemo though.
