As some of you may know, I am a breast cancer survivor, still feeling blessed and fortunate almost a full five years after surgery and a year of chemo. Since October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it may be a good time to make an appointment with your doctor or clinic for a mammogram if you haven't already done so this year and you're of an age where this is recommended. And of course, don't forget your monthly self-exam - that's how I found the lump which led to my surgery which saved my life.
The worst thing you can do is be afraid to check, afraid to know.
I'm the world's biggest scaredy cat and yet I did what had to be done and lived to tell about it. Don't be a wimp. Take charge. Do it.
