breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It's not a woman's disease.  It's a family disease that, according to the Centers For Disease Control, directly affects 190,000 women and their families per year.

Including mine.

Early detection is the best medicine.  Monthly self exams, mammograms as prescribed, and replacing bad habits may save your life.

Take good care of your self, if not for you, then for me.  I like having you around.

Support the good work of the National Cancer Institute

Coincidentally, I have a mammogram appt. scheduled for 3:15 p.m. It's like a Russian Roulette game we have to play.

Gail, I understand they are less than pleasant but I commend you and expect you shall come home with great results.

Hi Toad,

Just got home. The technician took the extra time to call the medical doctor who reviews the screens. MD's first inclination was "no visible abnormalities" but prefers to compare those taken today with the ones taken in May, 2011.

Thank you for your vote of confidence. I'm starting to feel better already. ;-)
