As you can see by my SparkPage, I am a breast cancer survivor. I would be remiss if I didn't post a blog reminder that:
Ladies, please go get "the girls" checked out. Promise me that if you haven't had a mammogram in the last year that you will go THIS MONTH. As an incentive, most places give free gifts if you have your mammogram in October. I got a nice lanyard for my work ID badge & a nice water bottle to take to the gym last year. And, as things turned out, that mammogram changed my life forever. Mammograms are not fun & they are a bit uncomfortable, but early detection is key!! Trust me, I know from experience. A few minutes of discomfort is so much better than the alternative.
Guys, you're not immune. If you have something wacky going on in that area, don't be macho & think it'll just go away on its own -- go have it checked out ASAP!! My poor brother has a higher risk of breast cancer because I've had it.
Sooooo, just so we're clear:
so that you can:
Blessings to you!!!
