Thanks to “Pink up” fundraising efforts around the country, mammograms may be available free of charge for women who cannot afford them. Mammograms detect cancer early when of the best results for a cure can be obtained. If you have not had a mammogram recently because of your financial status, call your local chapter of American Cancer Society or local hospital/medical center and ask if it’s possible to get a mammogram through the “pink up” fundraisers in your town.
Dealing with any cancer is scary. A person dealing with cancer should not try to deal with it alone. Team with your doctors and learn about your illness. Allow your loved ones (both family and friends) to give you support. Cancer support groups can be found locally in many communities and through the American Cancer Society website: http://www.cancer.org/Treatment/SupportProgramsServices/find-support-programs-and-services-in-your-area-landing Don’t tackle this illness alone.
