Breast Cancer Awareness Month Starts Today

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month started in October 1985.* It is an extraordinary month as we educate about early detection and celebrate the journeys of all breast cancer survivors.

Today, more than ever, there are so many available resources.  I will share many that I have learned about throughout this month.  You can decide if it will be helpful for you.  My best advice is to ask your doctor or nurse about your specific situation as it may be different from what you may hear about from others.  My other advice, which is easier for me to suggest than to follow, is:  TRY NOT TO WORRY until you need to! 

Although it may be concerning to you to go to a medical office these days, it is important to consider your physician’s advice for your own medical care.  I recently had a mammogram.
