It’s October 1 and Breast Cancer Awareness month, so, if you haven’t already, it’s time to get the girls checked. I would have my blog go pink for the month but frankly, I don’t think it could get any pinker, LOL!
I lost my mom to complications from breast cancer just over a year ago, so this is a subject near and dear to my heart. Ladies, this is what I’ve read and what my doctor tells me: please get your mammograms, they are still the gold standard for early detection. If you have a family history, talk to your doctor about starting mammograms earlier than recommended.
And beginning at age 20, start doing your monthly self-exams (make it fun — ask someone to help you) 😉
