Following a routine annual mammogram in January 2017, I was called back for additional screening. The subsequent mammogram and ultrasound led to a biopsy, and 9 days after my call-back I was given the diagnosis...breast cancer.
I am told the tumor is too deep for me to have known it was there, so the moral of the story is get your girls checked, girls. Annual mammograms can make a difference.
