After putting this procedure off for 15 years I bit the bullet and had a mammogram today. An Internet friend (kricket) shamed me into it. And I think this pleases my sister who wanted me to do this, but she doesn't preach or push.

It isn't something difficult to do and I have no reason for putting this off. The clerks and the technician were all kind and professional. So the message to everyone reading this is get yourself or someone you love to make that appointment. I don't feel allowed to say more as I was so delinquent in doing this for myself.

Perhaps the machine that was used today is a bit old. I was told it was going to be replaced by an updated model next month. It only took about 15 minutes. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, take precautions and get that mammogram.

Way to go Sharon!Have you also encouraged your girls to have this procedure? The machine is certainly not as daunting as the modern ones and I would love to think that I could be there for only 15 minutes. I'm very proud of you for taking care of yourself this year and finding that you are "fit as a fiddle"!!!Love, Your sister

I'm so proud of you, mine is scheduled for Monday, October 15th.
I'm glad we'll be friends for a long long time. A thanx goes out to your sister for gently pushing you toward your test. Bravo, good job.

Love you, tua sorella
