Martinis and Mammograms
October 27th 2011
October is breast cancer awareness month and this was a fabulous free event provided by SkyRidge Medical Hospital.
Self breast exams are extremely important, but making sure women see a doctor by the age of 40 to get a regular mammogram is even more essential, unless you have a family history in which case you should schedule them sooner.
Marlene Tendler, the current Mrs. Douglas County, invited Emily and I to this event because she works with Sky Ridge and she too wanted to help spread the word. Denise Plante was the emcee for the evening festivities where we could sip martinis and shop the vendor booths. I even won a pink logoed water bottle as a door prize.
It is never to early to educate yourself on early detection.
Pictures to follow at a later date.
