On this last Thursday of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I am thankful that my sister-friend of 25 years teamed up with God, sound physicians, and beat the crap out of breast cancer! She is cancer-free and I for one am glad about it!!!
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the 5-year relative survival rate of cancer for stages 0 and 1 is 100% and for stage 2, 93%.
Early detection is key!
The ACS recommends annual mammograms for women over the age of 40. If you are over 40 or at higher risk, PLEASE schedule a mammogram today!
