Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Just a reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Ladies, lets make sure those mammograms are up to date. Also, make sure you do your monthly self-exams. I worked for a plastic surgeon for over 18 years and know very well how important these things are.

Breast cancer treatments have dramatically improved over the years and the cure rates are higher than ever. That's great news!!! So, lets all take care of ourselves, okay?

Yes mam!

Racquel and Darla-It's important! Take care of yourselves.

I can only empathize with all the ladies. Please, take care and be sure to get a check up.

(I enjoyed the farm tour Susie. My father-in-law is a dairy farmer so I know how hard farmers work.)
