There are a few words that I am not a fan of and ‘cancer‘ is one of them. No matter who you talk to, we have all been affected in one way or another by cancer. Unfortunately, I lost my grandma to cancer and was never given the chance to meet her.
My grandma died from breast cancer the year before I was born. I listen to my mom talk about her mother weekly. She misses her dearly and knows that her mom’s life was taken way too early. I hate that I never had a chance to meet her or make memories with her. There are so many things that I hate about the situation and feel a bit cheated that I didn’t get to grow up with a grandma present in my life. The saddest part is that my grandma felt a lump in her breast and didn’t take the proper steps in time to save her life.
There is no reason in this world that you should take a lump in your breast or getting a breast exam yearly lightly. I know many women don’t like mammograms and complain about them but they save lives every day. Methodist Richardson Medical Center offers 3D Mammography that can detect breast cancer in very early stages which can prevent you from even going through chemo or a double mastectomy.
One fear and annoyance that many women have is getting called back to the office for more imaging with regular mammography. The great thing about 3D Mammography is that there are much fewer call backs so you don’t have to stress about returning to your Dr. office.
Methodist Richardson Medical Center is hosting a fun Mad Hatter Tea Party to celebrate breast cancer fighters and survivors on September 12th. Each guest who has battled breast cancer, or is still in the fight, will have the option to be honored by walking the pink carpet. After the participants strut their stuff, Jenevieve Hughes, MD, renowned breast cancer surgeon, will be the guest speaker.
This will be such a fun event with massages, makeovers, hat decorating and more! I would love if you would join me! Registration is completely free but it is required.
