Give yourself a mammogram reminder
How effective is a mammogram in detecting breast cancer? According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is found early, before it spreads to other parts of your body, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99 percent! And most women will live a full life and never have a recurrence. Early detection and effective treatment are the reasons why breast cancer survival rates are so high.
Having a yearly screening mammogram is the best way to detect breast abnormalities early, when they are most treatable. For a free yearly mammogram reminder, fill out the simple form. Your mammogram reminder email will arrive at the beginning of the month of your yearly mammogram.
