Every women should have a mammogram.

May 9, 2013

This isn’t easy for me to write. I’m very lucky
so far. It took me 10 years before I would have
mammogram done. New York starts them at
35 other places starts them at 40.

I’ve my Aunt Carol and my Aunt Ruth to thank
for talking me into getting a mammogram. If I
never found out that 3 of my aunts had passed
away from breast cancer and 1 survived breast
cancer I don’t think i would have had one.

Reason being is I had heard so many bad things
about getting a mammogram. Like they put your
breast in this machine and squeeze your breast
till they are flat and hurts really bad. Yes they do
put your breast in a machine but that don’t squeeze
them till they are flat. Yes there is discomfort but it
isn’t that bad.

I’ve had my 2nd mammogram now and waiting on
the results to come back. I should know by Monday
the results of my mammogram. I’m praying it comes
out ok. But if not I will handle it just like I’ve with the
rest of my life and with Gods help and family and friends
support I’ll make threw any thing.

I hope all women and men do self exams so they
can catch it early.

Mammogram does saves lives. Please all my women friend
get your mammogram if your doctor has told you to. I want all
you healthy and around for a long time to come. All so to you men to.

Thank you
