Breast Cancer Awareness Hits Home

October is breast cancer awareness month and I really want to urge all of you to get your mammograms. It is so important to get your scheduled screening, because you just never know. This is especially true if you have breast cancer in your family.

A mammogram can reveal abnormalities that you can't feel from your self-exam.

And 2 weeks ago it did with me. So yesterday, I went for a biopsy--not a day at the beach, but not that bad either. Anyway, I'll find out something in the next few days.

Whatever the result, I have the assurance that it was found early--when I'd have the best chance of recovery.

So wear pink and support your local programs.

And I wouldn't mind your prayers either.

Grace, Kathy
