"I could feel that the lump had begun to grow. My doctor decided I'd better have a biopsy. That's when they take out a small piece of tissue Second In a Scries 1 went into the Jewish Memorial HoapM and when I woke up they had removed my left breast. The lump had been cancer," recalls Mrs. Shade, who was 24 at the time. "My first reaction was hysteria,'' said Mrs. Shack, a Bronx housewife. "But I knew it had been a life and dealh situation. My husband's sympathy and understanding helped a lot. Besides, I still had to have my baby." Five months later, Mrs. Shack gave birth to a five- and-a-half pound girl, Stacy. That was seven years ago. ALTHOUGH TENS of thousands of American women undergo breast removals every year, the subject has only recently received national publicity since Shirley Temple Black underwent the same surgery earlier this year. Previously, women like Mrs. Shack have had to deal with the emotional and physical problems resulting from breast removal in the privacy School Secretary Workshop Staged At Carl Sandburg Forty-three area secretaries attended a workshop for educational office personnel July 25 at Carl Sandburg College.

Mrs. Shack recaps t how quickly she worked her'.Way back into a fully active .'jou- tine.

But two years ago the American Cancer Society sponsored a program called Reach to Recovery which provides emotional counseling and practical suggestions for exercises and John Henry Jones is a science writer with the American Cancer Society grooming that helped speed patients' lives back to normal. Recently, Mrs. Shack appeared on a nationally aired TV panel show, along with Mrs. Terese Lasser, coordinator of Reach to Recovery, and several cancer qpeaaiists.

"I don't like to see censorship of any kind except for national security," said David Carlptro- em, who also announced his candidacy for the city's Board of Supervisors. However, Carlstroem said he doesn't like the nudity featured in North Beach nightclubs. "I don't waste my time going here," he said. public debate about whether or not the more extensive breast operation, called radical mastectomy, which is favored by many doctors, is necessary since, according to some reports, similar results are possible with less extreme procedures. Both Mrs. Lasser and Mrs. Shack vigorously defended their "radicals." Mrs. Shack, herself, became a Reach to Recovery volunteer last year. "When I read Mrs. Lasser's book (Reach to Recovery), I knew it was what every woman who's had breast surgery would like to know and I wanted to help." Last year, Reach to Recovery volunteers visited with 27,000 patients who were recovering from breast surgery.
