With her permission, I wanted to share that our beloved daughter-in-law Rachel (mom to the grandtwins) was diagnosed with breast cancer recently. She has had a lumpectomy and the prognosis is very positive because her cancer was caught early with a mammogram. We don't know the full extent of her treatment plan, but we do believe she will be fine and we're very relieved and grateful.
I am sharing Rachel's story to remind you how important and life-saving mammograms can be. Rachel is only 45. She had her first mammogram two years ago and it came back clean. She recently received a letter from the clinic telling her that the protocol for her age is to wait five more years before having another one. Thankfully, Rachel's intuition told her to go ahead and get a mammogram anyway. The tumor was deep and would not have been discovered with a self-exam.
I know having mammograms for women under the age of 50 is controversial, but we shudder to think how advanced Rachel's cancer would have been had she waited five more years! You're all dear to me, so if you've been neglecting getting your mammogram, make that appointment today, especially if you are over 50. I have neglected getting my own, but now I have an appointment next month.
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by so I can be sure and return the flavor!
