Mammy and Pappy

No …we are not new grandparents (although it would be really really nice).
It’s the two things that we women need to do at least once a year.
Your annual mammogram and pap test.
Fun fun! I know you are thinking “Oh boy!” “Just what I wanted to do.”
I would rather watch paint dry! I mean it.
 I can not think of anything more humiliating other than maybe
having dog poo stuck to your shoes while walking into a reception in your honor!
But I went today for both of mine…..yeah yeah…who cares right?
Why am I sharing this……to remind you to do yours!
After all, early detection and screening is the main key. Getting regular screening tests is the best way for women to lower their risk of dying from breast and ovarian cancers. Screening tests can find the cancer early, when it's most treatable, giving you a better opportunity.
So…go make your appointment for your Mammy and Pappy tests, you know you have been putting it off.

Trying to stay healthy,
