Betty Hamric gives a goodbye kiss to Michael Hamric, 4, while in their home in East Naples on May 21, 2015. Betty has parental custody of Michael and his two brothers. To give Betty space to recover, the boys will spend the night at their aunt, Jody Hamric's home. "They are my rocks," Betty said about the boys. Her decision to have the procedure was a preventative measure resulting from a lump found in her left breast that tested positive for breast cancer. She says she did not want to risk her boys growing up without a guardian.
