First Of The Month Bazooms Blogging

Ladies! Listen up! Catching breast cancer early is the key to surviving it! Breast Self Exams (BSEs) can help you to detect breast cancer in its earlier stages. So, on the first of every month, give yourself a breast self-exam. It's easy to do. Here's how. If you prefer to do your BSE at a particular time in your cycle, calendar it now. But, don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

And, once a year, get yourself a mammogram. Mammograms cost between $150 and $300. If you have to take a temp job one weekend a year, if you have to sell something on e-Bay, if you have to go cash in all the change in various jars all over the house, if you have to work the holiday season wrapping gifts at Macy's, for the love of the Goddess, please go get a mammogram once a year.

Or: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention pays all or some of the cost of breast cancer screening services through its National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. This program provides mammograms and breast exams by a health professional to low-income, underinsured, and underserved women in all 50 states, six U.S. territories, the District of Columbia, and 14 American Indian/Alaska Native organizations. For more information, contact your state health department or call the Cancer Information Service at 1-800-4-CANCER.

Send me an email after you get your mammogram and I will do an annual free tarot reading for you. Just, please, examine your own breasts once a month and get your sweet, round ass to a mammogram once a year.


And, here's a video demonstration of a BSE:

Once again, dear goddess, thanks for this important public service announcement.

Forgive me if I hope you have to quit your job to fullfill the promise of readings to those who take you up on your kind offer.

What is your email address? I'll take you up on your offer, although it wasn't a yearly mammogram, but a 6 month follow up diagnostic yesterday to make sure that some possible milk of calcium pockets were actually just that.

I get to go back to getting screenings - so it was very good news.

Thank you for the reminder, I have mine scheduled for April 15, first available appt., despite the fact that I work for an accountant and..well, we all know the importance of that date. My breasts, my health, is most important.
