“BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH”

WHEN: Saturday, October 1 through Monday, October 31th   ribbon

Where: NATIONALLY

WHY: Because it’s imperative that we spread the word that Breast Cancer is the 2nd most common kind of cancer in women.

The good news is that mammography-the screening test for breast cancer helps detect it earlier when it’s easier to treat.

Want a way to easily remember to perform a Self-Exam to check out the girls (boobs, tatas, the dream team, breasts)? My friend, who is a breast cancer survivor herself says the way she tells ladies to commit to the monthly breast check is to simply do it on their birthday (can’t forget that date). Another way is to have a trusted buddy pledge to do the exam when you do. Since you both perform the breast self-check on the same day, you  are both equally accountable to each other.

There’s an APP For That!  I’ve even seen some sites on the internet that will send you a monthly reminder to do your self-breast exam,SERIOUSLY-How Easy is That!  Whatever makes you remember to do it is all good-JUST DO IT!

 

 MAKE A DIFFERENCE-SPREAD THE WORD-GET INVOLVED

and

  1. Ths “3D” mammography should be standard because it’s more precise and can find even the tiniest cancer cell. More cancers could be caught earlier and the medical insurance companies should cover all forms of diagnostic testing not charging exuberant amounts of copayment especially to cancer survivors. “Just saying”

    • HI Darlene. You are so right! The “3D” version is way more precise and accurate, but unfortunately conventional mammography is the only choice available for some women. To take advantage of this test women should specifically ask for it by name when they schedule their mammogram and hopefully it is covered under their health plan. Sometimes if you don’t ask-you don’t get, so lets start asking!
      The 3D mammogram is the gold-standard and it should be the ACCEPTED PRACTICE for “ALL WOMEN”, REGARDLESS OF PRICE!
