October is national breast cancer awareness month, please do your part to support the cause. Since the program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women over 50. Breast cancer deaths have declined. That progress is encouraging, however, early detection is key. This includes yearly mammogram screenings and clinical breast exams, not to mention monthly self-examinations. It just might save your life! Put away all excuses: unpleasant, embarrassing, happens to others, ... Come on, be proactive and assertive, don't live in ignorance or denial.
My mother-in-law, my sister-in-law, my husband's aunt & cousin are all breast cancer survivors. Would love for there to be a cure before my sweet granddaughters become women. Pleased that Octobber proceeds from our Bunko group went to help combat breast cancer. Every little bit helps!
