When was your last breast self exam?

If it's been 30 days or more since your last breast self exam, it's time to do it again.  It doesn't take long, it isn't hard, and it doesn't hurt. It MAY save your life. Don't be foolish by skipping it. Do it. Now, please.

Not sure how?  Here are some links to useful info:

Now, please create a recurring monthly appointment in your cell phone, computer, or other calendar that you rely on for your appointment keeping, to do your monthly breast self exam.If you feel a lump during a breast self exam, contact your doctor and request a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound. If your doctor doesn't take your concerns seriously and won't order the tests, go to another doctor. EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES - including your own. 

Prayer requests: 
  • Praise and thanks to the Lord for reaching my 2 year survivor milestone this coming week (28th) and for His continued protection and ongoing healing and guidance.
  • For clarity and strength as I consider a major reconstructive surgery that I may undergo in one month. May the Lord guide me and my surgeon to make the right decision, for the right reasons.
  • For healing and comfort for a sister warrior in crisis with metastatic breast cancer.
