Since my breast cancer diagnosis, I’ve received more support than I could ever imagine.
Family, friends, and acquaintances have reached out with prayers, good vibes, virtual hugs and offers of food, rides to the hospital, child care assistance, and more.
I know from my own experience when you see someone suffering, you want to do something, anything to help in some way. Often we don’t know what to do.
Did you know,
1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her life.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the U.S. and around the world.
Every 2 minutes, someone is diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S.
In 2020, 276,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S.
85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer.
Regular screenings with mammography have resulted in 30% fewer deaths from breast cancer.
When it’s found early, it can be treated and it can save lives. It’s saving mine.
So many people have asked how they can help and what they can do to ease the stress and make things better for me and our family.
The greatest gift anyone can give to me is to get screened.
I often wonder if I had skipped my mammogram, where would I be a year or two years down the road? How much more advanced would my cancer be?
Schedule your mammogram today. Do it for me. Do it for your family. Do it for yourself.
