JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- She's a peppy mom and wife with a big fan club.
Elizabeth Van Cleve is working hard now to tackle breast cancer.
Her daughter, Sally, said she's put a lot of prayer into her mom's fight.
Elizabeth said she paid attention to Buddy Check 12 reminders. Now she's in treatment for breast cancer.
Click on the video story to meet Elizabeth and her radiologist at Baptist, Dr. Sudha Bogineni-Misra.
Dr. Bogineni wants to emphasize that, yes, women should look for changes in their breasts. But if they find a breast lump, they should "not panic."
She said 85% of breast lumps turn out NOT to be cancer.
