    He gently kisses you while sweeping your hair behind your ear. His hand travels downward, past your ear, down your neck, lingering for just a second on your shoulder. You look into his eyes as he kisses you again, but it’s different this time, more passionate. The hand that has been patiently resting on your shoulder continues its journey down your spine, pulling you closer to him as he tugs at your shirt. Anticipating your answer, he gazes into your eyes; you nod to give him the okay as you eagerly fall for one another.

    "Cancer, I don’t have time for you”

    Breast Cancer is something that women shouldn’t have to go through alone and at Arkansas State, women don’t have to.“Hm, cancer I don’t have time for you, so we’re going to get this knocked out. Cancer was not beating me,” Wendy Anderson said.Arkansas State head football coach Blake Anderson and assistant basketball coach Mike Scutero both have wives who are fighting through this disease, but they are not fighting alone.One in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the U.S.Kimberly Scutero, 39, of Orlando, is the administrative assistant to the vice chancellor of Finance & Administration at Arkansas State University. She is the mother of two boys Noah and Kaleb.“I stumbled upon it by pure coincidence,” said Kimberly. “I found the lump myself. So, I knew that I needed to go get a mammogram. I had that done on June 26. When I went to do my mammogram, they called me in a room to tell me that it wasn’t only the spot I discovered, but there was another spot in a lymph node as well.”It was similar to the story told by Wendy Anderson, 47 of Conroe, Texas. She is the mother of three children Coleton, Callie and Cason. "I found it by accident," said Wendy. "I got sun burnt and my bathing suit had slipped a little and I scratched. When I scratched, I said to myself that’s a lump and I initially thought it was a cist because my mom had a couple of cist in the past. I really wasn’t paranoid at that point.”Wendy was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in the spring. Wendy traveled to Mexico for six weeks to receive special treatment that isn't offered in the U.S.Initially, doctors informed Wendy that the tumors they discovered were inoperable due to the location of the tumors.June 28, Kimberly went in for a biopsy on the three spots that were discovered, on June 29. The doctors called Kimberly to tell her that all the spots were malignant.“It was horrible. I’m so much better now, obviously because I've had time to digest it. But at that point you just don’t know what stage you are. You just know that you have two tumors and a lymph node that are infected and it’s a fast-growing type of cancer,” said Kimberly.“I find the strength from my kids, they’re just so young and that’s what I’m living for. That’s what you get up for every day, you want to show them that you can do this. This is not a death sentence at all, this is treatable," said Kimberly.Breast cancer is something that can’t be avoided, however, there are various ways that it can be detected at early stages, like getting tested for the BRCA gene. The BRCA gene test is a blood test that uses DNA analysis to identify harmful changes in the breast.Wendy added, “The Arkansas State family has been really good to me. When I was gone to Mexico, all the coaches’ wives chipped in to help me feed the kids and that was a major relief. I didn’t have to worry about what was going on.“For me quitting or giving up was never really an option. I knew I had so much more to live for. I’m going to see my kids graduate and I’m going to see my kids married and I will play with my grandbabies,” said Wendy.About 85 percent of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic mutations that happen because of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.Get your mammograms.
