|SUE - a breast cancer survivor||
Well today is a bitter cold day and predicting 5-10 inches of snow. With all the hustle and bustle with the holidays coming, please don't forget that you have a job to do for you. Ladies, do your self breast exams every month, after your period or those of us past that , pick a date and do your exam every month on that date. I happened to pick my birthdate so every month I know to do my self breast exam on that date. Also starting at age 20 and every three years, a clinical breast exam and every year starting at age 40. And last but not least, have a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk. Ask you doctor which screening tests are right for you if you are at higher risk. Having said all that, remember it is your job to take care of you and especially during this busy time. Keep warm and keep smiling!
