October is Breast Cancer awareness month and Celeste did a fabulous post, not just raising awareness but challenging specific individuals, myself included to book a mammogram.

I took her challenge and got on the phone to my nearest clinic and made an appointment. People! I am having my 1st ever mammogram on the 2nd December!

In the spirit of not just raising awareness but also calling to action, I’d like to challenge the following Mom bloggers to follow suite and book themselves for a mammogram:

Lisa-Marie from To Love Bella

Sian from Waiting For A Miracle

Tanya from Dear Max

Roz from Two At Two

Elize from Where’s My Bun

In fact to all my girl friends both IRL and in the computer, consider yourselves challenged!

I have never been for a mammogram and if I’m honest I’m not even that nervous about it. How bad can it possibly be in comparison to what I’ve already been through in terms of medical procedures? I have inquired about it but every time my gynae has told me that because I was not 40 & with no history of cancer it was not necessary. But I’d still rather be safe than sorry.

I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. One of my oldest friends lost her mom to breast cancer and just this week I heard the news of Giuliana Rancic’s breast cancer diagnosis and I’ve really felt called to do it since hearing that news. So Celeste’s challenge came at the perfect time!

Lets do this!
