The statistics are daunting:
Breast cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women. It is the second most common cause of cancer death in white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native women. Annual mammograms (for those 40+) combined with regular self-exams are the best known way to detect breast cancer early, and of course, the earlier you catch it, the better the odds for beating it. So, if you are 40 or older and haven’t booked your annual mammogram yet, take 2 minutes today, no, RIGHT NOW, to book your appointment! We’re serious, stop reading and go make the call! If you’re without insurance, there is no need to skip it – there are many programs from coast-to-coast that give free mammograms.
