We know you’re busy, but as you juggle taking care of everyone else, don’t forget to take care of your health. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you’re over 40, have you had your mammogram this year? Or have you followed up with your doctor when you’ve noticed a change in your breasts? If not, please take a moment today and schedule a mammogram or make an appointment for a physical breast exam. Because, you don’t have to have family history or a BRCA gene to be at risk. 90% of breast cancer patients don’t have a genetic history.
Think Pink Events
This month there are special events that can help you learn more about your health and ways to find support and resources near you. FM100.3’s Midday Host Rebecca Cressman is a 4-year breast cancer survivor and will be at these events and is happy to answer any questions you might have.

This is the first PINK SYNC event for breast cancer patients in Utah.
