Powerful Video From Woman Battling Breast Cancer

by Corey Carter

This woman made a video to document her journey through her battle with Breast Cancer.  

As you know October is National Breast Cancer awareness month, and working with many women who have been diagnosed over the years, here are 3 things that I've taken from them:

1-Be your OWN best advocate

2-Learn how and DO self-exams often (very easy - just ask your doctor or Google it)

3-Early detection is the most important tool we have in the fight - it's never too early to get a mammogram - especially with family history - even if your Doctor says you don't need one. (See #1 - this coming from a woman with NO family history who was diagnosed at age 28!)
