Video!

Just a quickie post today - no knitting content!

I was asked by my surgeon if I would be willing to be interviewed by a local tv station about having regular mammograms. I agreed - if it encourages one woman to pick up the phone and make the call, it will be worth it.

So here is the link if you'd like to view it - short gray hair and all!

Short gray hair, that looks 'cute as a button.' I love it, love it, love it. No, I don't love the way you had to get it. But I love the look of it now.

Very cool! It's great that you were willing to go public - I'm sure that it's an inspiration to a lot of women (even me) who might have skipped their next appointment.

I already know, that you already influenced one woman who reads my blog... She said she's not going to miss a mamo, any more!!!

You looked great and your interview was terrific.
Glad you're helping to get the word out. Some people are so afraid to go to the doctor, for fear of them finding something.
What they don't realize, that as in your case, finding something early enough makes all the difference.
