Wendy and I just did and we’re both all clear.

It will never again be hard for me to remember; I am going to do it on or about the anniversary of our sister’s death every year.

She delayed. And delayed, and delayed, and didn’t go have her lump looked at until it was nearly as big as a tangerine. She was too scared, and she admitted that was stupid. Many, many women make the same mistake for the same reason.

Don’t do that! Be scared not to be checked!

And yes, we need to remember the other unpleasant screenings, too, the pap smears and the colonoscopies.

Just do it.
