To all my Tennessee followers I want to share something special with you gals! I cannot stress enough how important it is to have your yearly mammogram. Did you know:
- 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
- Mammograms alone find 85-90% of breast cancers.
- Mammography can detect cancer up to 2 years before it is detected with a self breast exam.
- The current American Cancer Society guidelines recommend a yearly mammogram for women starting at age 40.
My friends at Belk have asked me to share something with you. They are providing free Mammograms in this area. Please see the details below and call and schedule your appointment today.
