Mammogram anxiety has become part of my routine process and maybe yours. Regardless of all the information we have about technological advances in detecting and treating breast cancer in its early stages, we still get nervous and want to procrastinate, or just totally avoid getting a mammogram.  I recognize this fear in me but I also know that early detection is key in saving lives.

It feels like winning a prize!
