that I had my mammogram detecting my breast cancer, I just want to encourage all of you over 40 curlies to get one. I attribute my good fortune in dealing with this to early detection and am now a strong advocate for mammograms. If I can encourage even one of you, I will be happy.

Btw, Sheryl Crow's breast cancer and the treatment she is receiving seem to parallel mine. I didn't have to have chemo either.

    Thanks Munchkin....

    I'm sorry to hear you went thru that, but so happy you are doing well today.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I had one when I was 35, I think my next one is when I turn 40.

    You know why pandas are endangered? Cause pandas ain't got no game.

    Jesus loves you, but I'm his favorite.

    I do want to say too that they stress getting mammograms at 40 but especially once you go through menopause. From all I have read there seems to be a correlation between menopause, estrogen, and breast cancer which is why so many older women seem to get it. So especially at this time of our life is it important.
