Treat Yourself Right This Valentine’s Day

We received compensation as part of a promotional program with CTCA and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.flowers 2011It’s so important that we take care of ourselves. Often this time of year we work on our health and it’s even more important that all women know the recommended guidelines for health screening tests like mammograms. My Great Grandmother had breast cancer and sadly two years ago I lost a childhood friend right before we turned 30. Often health screenings like mammograms can be life saving and they are so important.

On average, women over 60 are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Only about 10 – 15 percent of breast cancers occur in women younger than 45. So it’s very important to be screened throughout your life.
