Woman uses recurrence of cancer to urge others to get mammogram

Cindy Lawson is reliving the fight she thought she'd won more than a decade ago - but this time she is older and her bones are weaker. On Monday, she will go through a mastectomy for her second bout of breast cancer… Lawson talks about her lifetime achievement as if she were dying because this time, she may not be the victor. If doctors at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale discover during the two-hour surgery that the disease has spread substantially and they cannot remove it all, she worries she will have no options left.
