Hello again folks! I am really excited to tell you we pulled it off...Walk 4 Mountains 2019 will have a 3D MAMMO VAN!!! Sentara has so graciously accepted our invitation to join us on 12 October 2019! What can I say... I will tell you the same thing I tell my daughter - we ALL have our weird 😊
The reason this weirdo is so excited about getting people squished is because a routine breast exam followed up by a 3D mammogram is the reason I am writing to you right now! That's right, as most of you know I was 39 years old when I was diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer. There is NO FAMILY history. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE sign up today for your 3D mammogram.
3D Mammograms catch 40% - 50% more tumors than 2D mammograms.
1 out of 8 women (12 percent) will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer before they are 80 in the U.S.
85% of women diagnosed with Breast Cancer have NO FAMILY HISTORY
We will have 20 slots open for you to come and get your 3D mammogram! So book early! Just as promised, I will make cookies for the mammogram van. It isn't that bad...but you should still get a cookie I think. Along with your cookie, you will be provided deodorant, wipes (to take off deodorant), and a ride via shuttle service to your group walking along the route. This is because we love you and don't want to see you finish last after having a mammogram. How's that for an offer?! IF YOU CANNOT REGISTER FOR THE WALK - STILL GET YOUR MAMMOGRAM!
