North Valley Breast Clinic patient kicks off survivor speeches at Sundial Bridge Think Pink event. Read her encouraging cancer journey here:
"Hello! My name is Dianne Turney. I am a grateful breast cancer survivor of 2 and a half years.
When I first found out that I was going to speak at this event, I told my husband that since I was going to speak for the Think Pink event, that must mean I need to buy a new pink outfit. He said in typical male fashion, “No. It means you are supposed to think!” After 46 years he still doesn’t get it.
So to begin, my cancer journey can be seen through the lens of these four snapshots.

This (snapshot#1) is my fun-loving Aunt Alberta. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in the 1950’s. Back then the whole subject of breast cancer was hush, hush. Some people avoided her because they still thought cancer might be contagious. And though she fought it bravely, she died young. Her cancer was not found soon enough.
Thankfully, we have come a long way since then. Because of advances in imaging and regular screening, my cancer was discovered at a very treatable stage. I still underwent a bilateral mastectomy, but my prognosis is very good. I am a happy camper. I am alive and healthy and feel as feminine as ever.

This (2nd snapshot) is Dr. Grady, my breast surgeon. When I think about him and all the medical staff who cared for me during two surgeries and a couple months of complications I am so very grateful. I was treated with great skill, patience and kindness.
Our community is truly blessed by God to have this caliber of breast specialist.
I am also indebted to all the researchers and doctors who have dedicated their lives to making progress in treating this disease. My recovery was better because of them.
And a big thanks also needs to go out to the organizers of events like this who are raising awareness.
I watched my best friend, a mom in her 30’s, die of breast cancer. I lost my mother way too young who also had breast cancer. My niece in her 40’s just finished a grueling year of chemo and radiation. I know too well the pain and suffering of this disease.
I will never take lightly that Dr. Grady saved my life.

The third snapshot is a picture of flat-chested me in running gear. Soon after my surgery I started walking the neighborhood and watching more carefully what I ate. I knew that unhealthy lifestyles can increase cancer risk. With lots of encouragement from family and friends, I began jogging and training and last Oct placed 2nd in a 5K race in the Redwoods. In the process I was able to lose 57 pounds. I regret that it took a cancer diagnosis to wake me up to the importance of exercise and smarter eating, but no highly-trained surgeon or cutting-edge imaging technology could do this for me. Lowering my risk in this way was up to me. I do not want cancer back.
You know, my husband was right after all. This Think Pink event is about more than wearing pink and lighting up the bridge. It is a time to THINK.
1. We need to think seriously about regular and adequate screening. Early detection makes a huge difference. And if you have dense breasts that might mean more than a mammogram. And don’t forget your self-exams. Some cancers grow quickly.
2. We need to think about making healthy life choices that will lower our risks.
3. We need to think about lending a hand or encouragement to women who are going through chemo or radiation or who are fighting metastatic cancer. My daughter has been such a big help and encouragement these last couple of years. If you know someone fighting breast cancer reach out to them.
4. And we need to think about ways we can fight for the cure. Let’s make breast cancer more rare than polio. I have found a lot of joy promoting breast cancer awareness through my writing and editing skills. That might not be your cup of tea, but there are many ways to join the cause.

This final little (this was actually poster-sized) snapshot is of my newest granddaughter, Blythe. (Yes, I am a typical grandma.) This is why we shine the bright pink light on breast cancer tonight, so that fewer and fewer of our daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters will have to die of this frightening disease.
Think Pink! Together we can make a difference.
Thank you."
