Since it was a year ago March 7
that I had my mammogram detecting my breast cancer, I just want to encourage all of you over 40 curlies to get one. I attribute my good fortune in dealing with this to early detection and am now a strong advocate for mammograms. If I can encourage even one of you, I will be happy.

Btw, Sheryl Crow's breast cancer and the treatment she is receiving seem to parallel mine. I didn't have to have chemo either.

I hope you are doing well.
I never miss my annual mammo and pap. So easy. So important.

Thanks Munchkin....

I'm sorry to hear you went thru that, but so happy you are doing well today.

I had one when I was 35, I think my next one is when I turn 40.

I do want to say too that they stress getting mammograms at 40 but especially once you go through menopause. From all I have read there seems to be a correlation between menopause, estrogen, and breast cancer which is why so many older women seem to get it. So especially at this time of our life is it important.

Thanks for the reminder, and I'm glad too that you're doing well.
