Breast Cancer Awareness and Early Detection

This post is nearly 3 years late, but better late than never, right? I honestly haven’t been ready to tackle this topic until now, and it’s not the easiest to discuss even now, 3 years later. However, it’s necessary, so here goes…

With the help of my friends at the Breast Health Center and some amazing ladies in my life, we took the first step in effecting change in our community: group mammogram scheduling, aka Mammo Month. The event was fun and the staff at the Breast Health Center were so helpful with our coordination efforts.

Our community feels strongly that knowledge is power and we understand that the more we know, and the earlier we know it, the more empowered we’ll be to make important decisions.

What’s more important than our health, our collective health, as a community, as a country, as a whole for the Lessons Learned we’re leaving the next generation?

Let’s show them how we can collaborate, communicate, and effect change…one statistic at a time…

1 in 8 women NEED to detect their breast cancer early! Mammo Month is an excellent way to engage the women (and men!) in your life to make testing a fun event with friends and family instead of a dreaded, and, for some people, a terrifying experience. My mammo month is peace. ☮️

Solution: Mammo Month is a thing!!!
