Attention Ladies!

Though it isn't October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), any month is a good month to remind you to do your regular self-exams. I know from experience that early detection and treatment can save your life.

I am a breast cancer survivor whose mammography missed the suspicious growth I found two months later on my own. So ladies, get those annual mammograms, but check yourself regularly, too. Know your body. Breast cancer hits one in eight women. For more information about breast cancer (and all cancers) visit the American Cancer Society Website at

Men can get breast cancer, too, but they aren't at risk like us women.
Take care of yourselves and Happy Valentine's Day.
