  1. Great information! One of my coworkers/friends is a breast cancer survivor. I have known her for 18 years, and seen her battle cancer multiple times, and have her husband divorce her during battle #1….. I always get a recurring mental picture of her if I put off getting my annual mammogram- early detection is important! I have had to go a little beyond the standard screening; to the enhanced imaging, ultrasound, and biopsy.

    • That is horrible her husband divorced her while she was battling cancer. Sounds like he wasn’t all that great of a person and she is better off without him! I was supposed to get a mammogram, but honestly I am scared of it. I do not have much to go in the machine so I haven’t done anything yet. Now that we are moved, I am going to get a doctor closer to me and see what she says!

      • My friend is definitely better off! She is very active with work, her grandchildren, and her friends❤️❤️ I am so happy for her.
        Our radiologists at the women’s centers are really great at what they do- while “the squeeze” isn’t the best feeling, the nurses put me at ease and it’s over quickly.

      • I am glad your friend has someone like you in her life. I am also so happy she is doing well and is better off without that not supportive man.

        That is great the radiologists at the women’s center are great. I know I need to get a mammogram or at least an ultrasound, but the mammogram talk scared me. I just have no idea what they would squeeze on me because there really is not much to squeeze. I have a friend that does ultrasounds and she told me years ago I am too young for a mammogram and the ultrasound would not only be easier, but better at my age. Now that was many years ago and of course I am older, but I still would prefer to not have a mammogram.
