moniquedva I am from Portsmouth and now live in key west fl. maybe next time i go home for a visit we can meet up. and anyone wanting to visit Key West I will be more then happy to show you around.
as for the cost of mammos i know that all to well. part of my job is to book them and run the insurance information. and i can not tell you how heart breaking it is to have to cancel a breast biospy because of the money. not going to lie there have been a few cases that had me crying because i could not do more.

Good luck Missy! I'm so glad your results were good. Now make sure you keep up on those tests, once a year! If you can get the word out about where to go for free or low cost mammograms, and save one woman's life, it's worth it all.

Young and perky most of us aren't any more... We've earned our right to be "saggy"! LOL Our kids are healthy, and that's what is important. Sure, we'd all love to have bikini bodies, but only a few of the younger members might get there. I feel as long as I am healthy, and feel good, a good bra can make a world of difference, and if I feel that I look good, I'm going to carry myself as if I do, and it can make my day... I'm hoping as my weight goes down, that I do lose in that area, but if I don't, oh well....... so it goes....LOL emoticon

I'll try this again. The network went out on me a minute ago.

I got my results from my exam and it was GOOD NEWS. I do not take this blessing for granted. It has started me thinking. My unhealthy body image almost cost me to not get tested. I look at my breast and say yeah their still ugly. The old girls aint what they used to be. I did not take the time to really learn to properly self exam, figuring who cold tell the difference, I ignored changes in the way the appear and failed to ask the Dr. any questions again thinking that one day when I can afford it I am just going to have them lifted, so for now I will just hide them in a not so expensive bra. I wonder if I think this way are there others and how can I come to appreciate the thing that God created for me. I nurtured two children. What more could God do than that?

I want to encourage other women as well. women in my position who are un or under-insured. Testing early can be far less costly down the road. I am considering starting something where I can help get the word out to women to get examined. Also to have a healthier image of our breast as we get older. We already speak about getting exams early at church but I feel there is more that can be done. Wish me luck.

Thank Heaven Missy! I'm so glad you got it done, and am hoping and praying your results are good. It sure doesn't take much to make you relax when the waiting room is like that, does it. Where I go, there's no coffee or tea, but I can look out this huge glass wall, over the lake, and in the summer, watch the sailboats, etc. Let us know how you make out....

I finally had my mammogram. It wasn't as uncomfortable as it was in the past. The people in the office were very nice. There was even complementary coffee and tea in the waiting room. It was a relaxing atmosphere for a not so relaxing event. As I stated before I have been out of work for nearly a year now. I was blessed enough to find a local health center that performed a complete exam for 26.00. they use a sliding scale fee based on your income. I was then given an appointment for the mammogram free of charge. Persistence pays off. I feel very blessed to have found this place. Now just waiting for results.

I did find a place for free and low cost screening. I am waiting for them to call me back with an appointment date.

Please let me know how you make out, and what you find out. Don't put it off. You'll drive yourself crazy wondering and worrying, and if there is a problem, the sooner you know, the sooner something can be done... Good luck...

MISSY, I really can't help you.... Is there an American Cancer Society in your area? They might have some ideas if you should need help. Check with some of the hospitals. Here we have "Ask a Nurse" where you can call in with questions, and they'll either have the answers, or point you in the right direction. I wish I could say "contact such and so" but I can't. Those are the only ideas I have right now... Good luck, and praying it's not cancer....

Hello, I am new to this team but not to Spark. I have been a member for over two years now and lost about 65 pounds. I have gained back about 10 or 15 when I lost my job in Feb. and that is what brings me here. I did not know where else to go and was hoping my spark community may have some suggestions. As soon as I lost my health insurance I started to feel bad. I now feel a lump in my breast and am nauseous every day. Do you know of any organizations that can help me and if it turns out that it is in fact cancer do you know any organizations that will help me beyond the screening? BTW I live in the Atlanta area if that helps.

This thread is designed for those of us who may want to meet. If you have any interest in meeting a BC Sister, post where you live, where you will be traveling etc. Individual SPARK connections can be set up through Spark Mail or phone conversations.


I'll be the first to post so you understand how this works.
I am Inga and I live in the Chicago Illinois area, anyone who is coming through Chicago and would like to set up a meeting with me, maybe dinner, starbucks, visiting a Chicago landmark, just sparkmail me, thank you. If I am available during your stay in Chicago, I would love to meet you.
