A Lumberton woman shares her story as a breast cancer survivor and how her life changed

By Daniel Elizondo

As Darla Eason of Lumberton recounted those dreadful days a year ago, hearing a doctors voice tell her she has cancer, her reaction was like anyone else – “How can this be?”

As a working woman, a loving wife and mother of two sons, her life was in jeopardy, and all she could think was the worst.

Darla wasn’t scheduled for a mammogram until April 2016, three years after her previous test, which was recommended by her physician.

However in September 2015, she began to have intuitive feelings that left her uneasy.

“We have all had those feelings,” she said. “Just those nagging feelings like something isn’t right. It was the most overwhelming feeling that I needed to go and have a mammogram.”
