There's still such a long way to go and this month being Breast Cancer Awareness Month today we've got a guest post from Nanahood, to whom breast cancer awareness is particularly important. See her regular posts at nanaood.com.

Every where you go you see pink ribbons, reminding us to get a mammogram but I am not convinced that everyone who needs one-has had one.
A few weeks ago I spoke to a group of ladies at a church and I asked them how many of them had had a mammogram this year. Hands were raised. Then I asked how many should have had one this year but had not done so. They didn’t want to raise their hands, but some did. Later at lunch a lady explained to me why she hadn’t. She had an appointment then someone in her family had a crisis and she had to cancel it. So far she hadn’t found the time to reschedule.
That’s the way we are…
We take care of others and forget our own needs.
I asked the women there to please remind their friends, sisters, and moms to have a mammogram and they promised they would. Now I’m asking you? Have you had your mammogram? If you haven’t go make your appointment NOW!
Then call every important woman in your life and make sure they have had theirs. You never know. You might just save a life.
