She’s in her 30's and has been diagnosed with breast cancer, twice. Helen Oppenheimer was just 36 when her life changed: “I found a lump, during the course  of taking a synthetic hormone, a progesterone.” The doctor confirmed her biggest fear: she had breast cancer. “Wow, it’s been short, but it’s been fun. You’re literally staring at mortality.” She chose the option with the best odds. “I could actually do a mastectomy, no chemo, no radiation, and take tomoxocin for five years. And it was less than a one percent chance of reoccurrence.”  Unfortunately, she defied those odds. “I found another lump, on the same side, where I had already had a mastectomy. And I immediately went in. It was about the size of a small pea, as I could put it. And I got that same fearful phone call ‘I’m so sorry, but you’ve got cancer again’.” She’s had four rounds of chemo, and is awaiting radiation treatment that begins next week. Oppenheimer loves to see the ”Race for the Cure” come to town because she knows, she’s not alone. And she knows good things are being done to fight the disease. She also knows early detection has saved her life, twice.  In Portland this weekend, 35000 people are expected to turn out for the "Race for the Cure"  on its’ 20th anniversary.
