Regular Screening

This Sparked Me!

Physicians advise screening for a reason (Mammograms, Colonoscopies, MRI's). The expense is worth it. These can save your life by detecting problems when they are treatable...not terminal.

Please, don't delay! There are low cost clinics in most areas that can help, believe me, it's better than losing friends.

    In Canada, these tests are strongly encouraged and we DO NOT pay out of pocket for these vital screening tests. We are so fortunate in Canada to have such a fabulous health care system. I have just been diagnosed with DCIS, a very early form of breast cancer. Had my mammogram in February, Biopsy three weeks later, surgery three weeks after that and this week I will be meeting with an oncologist to begin radiation and tamoxifen. It's been a whirlwind but a very positive experience.

Leave encouragement, a question, or anything else relevant to this. All comments must abide by SparkPeople's Community Guidelines.
