When my mom lost her battle with breast cancer, my best friend asked how she could help. One of the things I told her was to call, text, and/or e-mail me until I made the appointment for the mammogram. She did. It did not take me long to make the call since the vision of my mom's last breath was too raw to let me put it off.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you have been told by your doctor to schedule a check up, do so. Don't put it off. Early detection is key and so is early treatment.
