Ladies Ladies Ladies!!! It's October. Why is that important? It's breast cancer awareness month. Our mom is a survivor of 7 years!!! Go mom!!! Girls get checked! If you're still too young for checks, tell your mom, aunts, and sisters to get checked!! According to the Oncologist from the Oprah Show, if you are 35 or older you need yearly exams. If you have family history of breast cancer your yearly exams should start at 30! However the research from the internet says age 40 and older for exams and start at age 35 if there is family history. Talk with your OBGYN! Earlier the better; that is what saved our mom!
