How Important is a Mammogram

Over the last 3 years I have clicked everyday to help another women receive a mammogram. I did this because of the importance for all women to receive one. What I neglected to do was get one for myself and as a Canadian mine was free. After waiting for almost 3 years to have a mammogram I finally asked my doctor for the requisition to get one done in April of this year. When the first one was done I was called back for a repeat, then sent for a biopsy. On May 7th of this year it was confirmed that I had breast cancer. The Doctor's removed the mass and I am now starting my radiation treatment. I thank God everyday that I finally had the sense to go for the mammogram and belive me never again will I wait 3 years to have another one done.
