  • Used by a leading American songwriter who wrote the music and lyrics for Broadway’s longest-runing musical. She told Peggy Huddleston:”When the nurse shook my shoulder to tell me my breast biopsy was over, I was so peaceful I didn’t want to open my eyes. I had no pain during the biopsy or afterwards.”
