this short piece about my experience.
This year’s appointment is set for tomorrow morning, and, needless to say, things are a bit different for me now. In addition to the usual mammogram, I’m also scheduled for a sonogram and an ultrasound. Of course, I’m thankful for the technology that makes these tests possible, but I'm certainly no Pollyanna when it comes to this disease, even when a mammogram detects it early.
Nonetheless, if you’re between 35 and 40 and have never had a mammogram, schedule one today. If you’re over 40 and it’s been more than a year since your last one, do the same thing. Do not delay, do not pass go, and do not collect $200. You owe it to yourself and the people you love.
