The article focuses on the battle of Kathleen Tsosie against breast cancer and her campaign against uranium mining in the Navajo area of Arizona. Although she is a one-year cancer survivor, she is expecting an ultrasound after a new growth has been spotted in her remaining healthy breast. She has worked through different emotional stages in dealing with the disease, looking for possible culprits behind it. She suspects that uranium exposure is its cause since the town of Cove where she has grown up is one of Navajo Reservation's major uranium-producing areas. Aside from her campaign against the proposed Hydro Resources Inc. uranium mine, she also has an awareness campaign among Navajos to help them know about the health and life of cancer patients.
