Give your Mum good health and encourage her to have a mammogram this Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day is a special time to remind your Mum how much she means to you. This year on Sunday, May 13th we will be celebrating our Mothers but it is also a good time to encourage her to protect her health by scheduling a screening mammogram.
“Mums often put family before their own needs,” said Ranee Guard, Summit Medical Group vice president of diagnostic and therapeutic services. “Just as Mother’s Day is a time to thank mothers for those sacrifices, it should be a time to encourage them to make their health and wellness a priority. A mammogram is a critical preventive tool, and we should take as many opportunities as possible to remind women to get screened.”
Mammography is a specialised medical imaging test that uses safe levels of low-radiation X-rays to help detect and evaluate changes in the breasts, which can help to diagnosis breast cancer. The earlier that breast cancer is found, the easier it is to treat successfully.
