October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 9th, 2014 Filed under Fruit Salad Tagged , , , Leave A Comment


If you haven’t had a breast cancer screening in the last 12 months, schedule an appointment today.

There are many different kinds of breast cancer and you are at risk if:

  • Your family has a history of breast cancer
  • Your family does not have a history of breast cancer
  • You are pre-menopausal
  • Your are post-menopausal
  • You are female (men can be at risk, too)
  • You have breasts

Please make all your friends and family aware of the importance of annual breast cancer screening. The new 3-D mammogram technology requires less compression of the breast, so it is now virtually painless and it only takes about 5 minutes to complete.

If you don’t have insurance or are not able to pay for it yourself, there are resources out there to help. Here’s a link to find resources in your area.

Please don’t make excuses and don’t put it off. I had mine yesterday. So glad I did….
