October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). Since the program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older and breast cancer deaths have declined. This is great news! And the relief of knowing you are okay is sweet and worth the few minutes of discomfort!

I had my mammogram last week. My darling hubby accompanied me and patiently waited as the small line progressed. No, I did not insist he follow me into the room. I have had mammograms for over 15 years. Knowing he was outside waiting was comforting, non the less.

I have many more books to write. Knowing I am cancer-free is one more stress removed. October is Breast Cancer awareness month, so get your today!
