Who Needs Flowers? Give Mom the Gift of More Birthdays this Year
Flowers, chocolates, breakfast in bed, but what about giving mom something really special this year? What about giving her More Birthdays?
Sunday is Mother's Day, as we celebrate the special women in our lives, the American Cancer Society is suggesting people talk to their moms this year about the importance of getting screened for breast cancer. While it may not sound like a traditional Mother's Day gift, having a simple conversation about getting tested could help save a life.
If you are 40 or older the American Cancer Society encourages you to get a mammogram. In addition, health advocates are urging all mom's to talk to their health care providers about getting screened for breast cancer and to better understand their personal risk for the disease.
