Mammograms Save Lives
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2011. It was after a mammogram that I was called back to receive the devastating news that I had breast cancer. I felt well, had no symptoms, have never smoked, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly so how could this be? There was no explanation, it can happen to anyone! Before I knew it, I had surgery to remove the lump followed by radiotherapy. Thanks to the advanced technology of a mammogram, my tumour was caught in the very early stages. I count myself very lucky indeed. 2011 was a very difficult year for our family but now we are looking forward to making up for valuable lost time and enjoying life to the full. I have written my story in order to raise awareness and encourage every woman between the ages of 50 and 70 to go along for a mammogram. I am so appreciative to the NHS for providing this service. In the UK, the NHS offers this service free to women every three years but sadly 25% do not attend. I am shouting this out loud…..Mammograms Save Lives!!!
