Remember your mammogram


I know we live in a busy society with the endless "to do" list, however, getting a mammogram should be as much a priority as you give anyone or anything else. It's about YOU, and although many women put themselves last on the their priority list, the mammogram should not be *put off*.

Four years ago my sister was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her right breast. She had put off going for a mammogram for several years, and there it was, a large cancerous tumor. She is a very fortunate woman to be alive today. With surgery and treatments, she is heading for remission.

We all know someone who has been affected by this disease. Please don't put yourself last on the priority list; make an appointment today! I don't want to be a television commercial, but it is extremely important.
