Teresa Heinz, wife of the U.S. Sen. John Kerry, revealed Wednesday she has been treated for breast cancer and urged women to get regular mammograms that she says could save their lives.
"The cancer was detected at an early stage thanks to a mammogram and the work of a remarkable physician who insisted on investigating beyond what the mammogram could show," Heinz, 71, writes in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I have had two operations and my prognosis for a full recovery is good."
She says her illness has "reminded me to slow down, cherish family and friends, and deepen my sense of life as a gift to be unwrapped each day with newfound joy and hope."

Sen. John Kerry's daughter Alexandra, who was arrested and booked for a possible DUI, was released after a breathalyzer test fell under the legal limit for intoxication, according to the senator's spokesman.
Alexandra Kerry, 36, who works as a film director/producer, was arrested in Los Angeles early Thursday morning and released at 5:25 a.m. after posting $5,000 bail, police records show.
"Alexandra Kerry was pulled over for an expired registration and was released after the results of a breathalyzer test at the police station were under the legal limit," says Jodi Seth, spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Democrat. "Senator Kerry supports his daughter and will have no further comment on a private matter."
