LA Moms Blog: A mammogram for your thoughts
Please check out my latest LA Moms Blog post, "Some family ties are wrapped in pink ribbons."
After much procrastination, I finally scheduled my first mammogram -- recommended by my ob/gyn because of my family history. I am only 34 years old, six years younger than the recommended age of 40, but my mother is a breast cancer survivor and she went through that while she was still in her 30s.
It also happens to be National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an interesting coincidence.
