Gladys Shaw, 88, a resident at Pioneer Ridge Retirement Community, left, shows manager Debbie Walker a photograph of her husband, Milbry Shaw, at Shaw's apartment Thursday. Shaw was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy at the age of 37 - 51 years ago. At the time there was not a lot of awareness and support for those with breast cancer. Shaw said her husband Milbry, now deceased, was her key support.
