I received a Mel’s bracelet on xmas day 2012 which was also my 63rd birthday. It was sent to me by a co-worker of my sister. I had been diagnosed with ductal carinoma in situ. I had a lumpectomy on 12/18/12. My pathology reports showed no cancer. It had all been removed with the biopsy. I had planned on having the 5 day radiation. I’m not going to have it now. This was the best birthday & xmas present I could have received. I had to purchase the Mel bracelets for my girlfriends & co-workers.
