Gift of Love This October
Just think of a woman who nurtured you for a moment. Could be your mom, sister, wife, a relative, or a friend. Someone who always gifted you with the best she has. The one you hope would always be happy and healthy. Finding her a meaningful gift for any occasion might seem a daunting task – Doesn’t it? How do you ever repay someone who shielded your best interests?
Well, it turns out that its easier than you think, and in a very meaningful way.
Before we get to the gift, did you know that every woman over 40 years of age has some breast cancer risk? Her risk may be significantly higher if she has had a family history of breast or ovarian cancer. Breast cancer is not preventable. But the early detection dramatically helps complete cure.
Mammography is a simple test that takes medical images of the breasts to see if there are any early signs of cancer. Most women after mammography get the good news that they have no breast cancer. But it’s a good news you want to keep seeking every year or as frequently as advised by your Doctor.
Most women, unless its mandatory in their country, do not undergo routine mammography, either due to ignorance or anxiety, or a mistaken belief that nothing would happen to them. This can prove costly – something that you don’t want your loved one to face. Well, you may reason that she self-examines her breasts every month. Why would she need a Mammo?
The reason is that it’s generally too late by the time a lump gets detected by self-examination. The wisdom is in picking it up early or keep ruling it out with routine mammography before the symptoms show up.
Hence from this October, which is also the breast cancer awareness month worldwide, why not gift a yearly mammography test to the woman who made a difference to you. A gift that would repay your debts most meaningfully, and protect her from the unseen, year after year.
