Her mother had Breast Cancer which put her at a greater risk of developing the cancerShe also consumed two or more alcoholic beverages a day which increased her Breast Cancer risk
Elizabeth could have detected the cancer right away by giving a breast self-examination for any lumps or massesOrShe could have listened to her body and went to the doctor when she noticed a new pain in ONE spot that didnt go away

She also could have seeing her only son get married
And have that Mother-Son dance she always dreamed of...http://www.flickr.com/photos/donnaboley/6101967298/sizes/m/in/photostream/
