September 1st marks the beginning of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, followed by October, which we all know is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Have you had your annual well-woman exam this year?
Are you doing monthly breast self-exams?
If not, THIS IS YOUR REMINDER! I strongly encourage you to make those potentially life-saving appointments this fall! Being proactive is SO important, and none of these screenings are the least bit scary! Not even the BRCAanalysis which I went through 4 years ago so that I would know if I was at a higher risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer because of a genetic mutation.
I’ve written ALL about all of these screenings (and the emotions that come along with them after losing a parent to cancer) on the blog and I encourage you to read them, share them, and make those appointments!
