I was tagged by Vixens Den to join the Pink Sisterhood. It is very important that women who cannot afford mammograms still get them.
I’m happy to participate in this meme. A few years ago, I had a mammogram come out wonky. After a needle apsiration (ouch!), I had to have a biopsy. While the growth was benign, it did contain altered cells, which my surgeon said would have developed into something more if they had been left alone. They scraped the area of the growth out well and now I have mammograms every 6 months for the rest of my life. My surgeon told me right up front, that with the altered cells like that, I am a very high risk for future breast cancer. Thankfully, we have medical insurance that pays for these mammograms and anything I might need in the future. If something crops up, it will very likely be caught early.
Let’s help save lives, by visiting The Breast Cancer Site. By simply clicking once a day, three mammograms per click will be funded for people in need. Do it for yourself, do it for your wife, do it for your friends, do it for children who need their mothers to be healthy.
And the nominees are: Lol, I tag everyone who’s won a prize on my blog this month! I know, I know, it’s more than 7…but I’m making the claim that I deserve the extras after this month! ;O)
