  • Importance of Mammograms

    by Watson Realty | Oct 17, 2012
    I have always known the importance of annual screenings for detecting breast cancer. Since my maternal aunt died of breast cancer, I knew that I could be genetically predisposed to have breast cancer as well. I went in for an annual checkup, and the doctor was unable to detect anything through a physical exam. I scheduled my mammogram, and that’s when the lump was discovered. A biopsy was done, and the results showed that it was cancer. I was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer on July 2, 2010.

    Since it was detected early, I had more treatment options.  I began receiving treatment at Baptist Beaches Hospital. We went forward with a partial mastectomy, and I received thirty-three radiation treatments over the course of several months. I have now been cancer-free for two years, and I continue to receive my mammograms every year.

    I was grateful that my breast cancer was detected early through an annual mammogram. I am thankful for the great doctors and staff at Baptist Beaches and for the prayers and encouragement of family and friends. I am a strong advocate for annual mammograms.  Please make sure that you and your loved ones are getting screened.  It could make all the difference if detected early.

  • Hearing the Words, You Have Cancer

    by Watson Realty | Oct 15, 2012

    In March of 2001 I joined Watson Realty Corp.  Business was great and life was good.  In April 2002 at the age of 42, I discovered a small lump on my breast while taking a shower. After a series of tests, a biopsy and even a second opinion, I was diagnosed with stage IIB, ER-Positive breast cancer of the right breast.  My oncologist suggested that I go with an aggressive approach with my treatment and so the process began.   The next nine months consisted of a mastectomy, reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiation.  From there I had 5 years of Adjuvant treatment with Aromasin.

    Hearing the words “You Have Cancer”, for me felt like my world had come to an end.  How could this be? I have always been healthy; I eat right and exercise. Besides that, there’s no history of breast cancer in my family!

    After a week of being in denial and crying, I had to come to grips with the situation.  This diagnosis somehow crystallized a determination inside me that I always felt but couldn’t articulate. With the help of my husband and family I had the confidence and assurance knowing that I was going to fight this.

    There are so many blessings that I received during those difficult times they seemed to outweigh the negatives. One being that, I never felt more fully embraced and loved by family and friends. Cancer changes you. It might sound trite, but I have a renewed sense of how precious life is, how blessed I am. 

    Now that weeks, months and years have passed with no recurrence, I'm finally at a place where I feel that I have won the battle. With all of the continued research, I do believe that there will be cure in our lifetime!

  • BREAST CANCER

    by Watson Realty | Oct 10, 2012

    Any diagnosis of cancer is enough to send one into a feeling of shock and disbelief.    However, some cancers are definitely better than others, and believe it or not breast cancer is one of the good ones.  Doctors and scientists have made such progress in the last few years in the field of breast cancer!  Take heart, “You can do this!”

    My first diagnosis of cancer was in 2002, and non-Hodgkins lymphoma was the disease.  It was totally new to me with no understanding of the disease or process to get through it.  Fortunately, I had a wonderful doctor.  We did a “wait and see” for over a year and in 2003 I was ready to start chemo when a small breast cancer was diagnosed.  Since I was scheduled for chemo, a lumpectomy took care of the breast cancer and I proceeded on schedule.  The next six years were cancer free until 2009 when a second breast cancer was diagnosed totally unrelated to the first, this one larger and more concerning.

    By this time I worked at Watson Realty and my bosses and coworkers were wonderful!  I worked through it, but missed time from work as I had to do the surgery, radiation, and chemo normally associated with breast cancer.   Probably the biggest thing I learned is to take charge of your care.  Ask questions about the surgeon, the treatment, etc.  Make sure your health care team are intimately aware of your particular disease and know the outcome.  The most important assets in getting through the process are a strong faith in God, your health care team and family and friends who really care.  Remember to do your self exams and regular mammograms…they save lives!

    When you have finished, take the hand of someone walking down the road behind you and give them the encouragement you received…a hug, the words “I’m so sorry you have to go through this”, and a reminder that they, too, can do it!

  • My Mother’s Survivor Story

    by Watson Realty | Oct 10, 2012
    Approximately 20 years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a mammogram, but it did not detect anything.  However, the doctor’s examination did.  A lump so small that Mom could note feel it when the doctor put her fingers right on it.  The doctor saved my Mother’s life.  Her breast was removed and it was decided that no chemo or other treatment would be necessary.  Mom recently died at the age of 92 years old.

    We were blessed that her Doctor caught it.

    We've come a long way, but there is so much more that needs to be done to give more women the success story that my Mother had.

  • Watson Realty’s Numbers Are Up for September Sales

    by Watson Realty | Oct 09, 2012

    Watson Realty Corp., is excited to share results of September 2012 closed and newly written real estate sales.

    Bill Watson, Chairman of the Board, feels that the company's special marketing incentives such as the Viva Las Vegas program partnered with the decrease in active home inventory has contributed to the excellent increase in sales.

    Closed sale sides in September of 2012 were $169,769,179.73 or $22,763,449.00 (15.5%) over September of 2011.

    Written new business was 30.73% above the written business for September 2011, giving us a total of $208,021,689.00 for September 2012.

    The number of units of real estate transaction sides was up 28.01% over the same time last year, indicating home prices will increase with fewer homes available on the market.

    Some markets are entering into a seller’s market with the Orlando area showing a 3.2 month inventory and Jacksonville a balanced market of 5.7 months of inventory.

    We feel the real estate market is beginning its recovery.  The recovery may be influenced, however, by European economic issues, the Dodd-Frank Act's excess regulations that restrict credit for good buyers, and the uncertainty of the upcoming elections.
