Met a young lady when I went through a Drive-Thru. She was wearing a pink bracelet. I asked her if she had a friend or family with BC and she said her mom was dx in 2006 and had 3 recurrences with it.Her mom is in her early 40's so I told her she must be checked(since 4 in my family had it).She already had a check up and the young lady is probably in her early 20's.This is why I think it should be 20-30's for mammograms. They didn't do them years ago when I first had my benign tumors at 20(now 66) but check-up were done by my doctors faithfully( I only missed 1 appt in 46 years).The metal plate in the 70-80's(OUCH) and finally the more tolerable mammos.
We hear about different people and their challenges.We may not know them but we hope they beat this beast.This young mother and daughter are in my Thoughts and Prayers.
