In an attempt to reach out to the female population, a local hospital distributed a medical pamphlet in the mail. The opening paragraph stated, “This October we encourage you to take some time to consider your breast health. Did you know that 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year? Protect Yourself. Get Screened”.
This is one of the greatest gifts that a woman can give to herself. If you are a male, you might consider gifting that special lady in your life with a scheduled mammogram. Now that’s a way to say, “I love you”.
