Breast Cancer Awareness Month

A few days ago, one of my best friends mom got diagnosed with breast cancer. She had no suspicion before her yearly mammogram. Cancer does not have to be a death sentence. The sooner you catch it, the greater chance of beating it. Health care professionals debate whether you should start getting mammograms at 40 or 50, but my friends mom is only 44. She could feel no lumps and the mammogram allowed the doctors to diagnose the cancer at stage 1, otherwise she would not have even known she had cancer. Go get checked!
