Thursday Reminder

Thursday, July 16, 2009
This is the time of year I go for a physical/mammogram. Reminding everyone to not neglect these very important visits to their Dr. Sure, I'd rather sew, but these tests are VERY important. So I'm urging you to schedule them if you haven't already.

I hope the tests go well! I'm definitely a firm believer that women should ALWAYS get tested for breast cancer. It may be a bit uncomfortable, but it sure as heck beats the alternative!

My aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. She ended up having both breasts removed and undergoing chemotherapy. Thankfully, its been about 7 or 8 years now and no signs of recurrence. It is a little scarey still because it could come back and my mom needs to be extra careful with her tests since her chances of developing cancer skyrocketed with her sister being diagnosed. Eventually, maybe doctors will fully understand what causes the cancer and can prevent it from happening in the first place.

Hope all went well in the boob-squash! I need to schedule my own--somehow I've let almost 3 years go by since my last one....
