Get a Mammogram & A Yearly Reminder

breast cancer awarenessCancer affects us -- that's a huge understatement. September was Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and now October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and one thing is certain -- we all need to be more aware no matter what month it is.

Women aged 40 and over are encouraged to get a mammogram each year -- and there is a new plan in place to help women remember to schedule one. But even if you are under 40, self breast exams are just as important...and easy to forget.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation's Early Detection Plan set up a system where you can get your yearly reminder by text, email, or even RSS feed. Seems like a great system, so I wanted to share with all the ladies.
