Mammogram & Pink Roses

June 27, 2012

Today I had a mammogram, on the way home I bought a present of a pink rose for myself. I enjoyed the camaraderie of the ladies in the waiting room. We did not meet before today, but with our little pink blouses on, we all had something in common, and were instant friends.

My test today was just the regular check-up films. But then again, working in PNG, there is not really the regular check-up. I make rare trips to Australia to get a good, reliable mammogram done when I am working in PNG. And I feel guilty that my PNG friends do not have good access to reliable testing for breast cancer. I have PNG friends who have died of breast cancer, as their cancer was not caught in good time.

If it has been more than a year since your mammogram, schedule an appointment now.
