Breast Cancer Awareness

This last week has been an emotional roller coaster ride of epic proportions. Having to face the possibility of being diagnosed with breast cancer really freaked me out.


I was fortunate enough to get an appointment with Dr Ritz at The Bone and Breast Centre on Tuesday (they are fully booked till the end of November) for a mammogram. Because of my age, I’m 31, they said I didn’t need a mammogram and that I could have an ultrasound, but because my doctor requested one, they did it. The mammogram didn’t show anything of concern, so I had an ultrasound. The results have come back CLEAR. I am scheduled to go for my next mammogram at the age of 38 because of family history.

Mammograms are an intimidating and uncomfortable experience. Having said that, I was expecting it to be allot more painful than it actually was. Regular breast checks are extremely important. FEEL YOUR BOOBIES!
